Join us to talk about project scope and timeline for iNEMI’s new Module with Separable Single-Mode Expanded-Beam Optical Interface for Edge-Coupled PIC Optics project. Two webinars are planned and are open to industry; advance registration is required. Fill out and submit this form to register. 


About the Project

This new iNEMI project will address the development of separable single-mode (SM) optical interface modules — including suitable photonic integrated circuits (PICs), connectors and assembly technologies — for data center applications (which demand higher efficiency and compact optical switches). The team will evaluate existing and developing components in order to identify gaps in the board-level technologies needed for practical implementation. 

Phase 1 will: 

  • Demonstrate the principle and operation of the separable SM optical interface for transceiver modules. 
  • Identify key barriers and challenges in terms of design, materials as well as packaging and assembly approaches to high-volume manufacturability. 
  • Start developing recommendations to the supply chain for assembly of such optical modules.
