SiPH – Silicon photonics is a platform basis from which photonic integrated circuits (PICs) can be made. Silicon on insulator (SOI) wafers are the semiconductor substrate material. Most of standard CMOS manufacturing processes can be applied to it. Silicon photonics uses semiconductor manufacturing infrastructure to produce optical components and systems that can transmit, process, and manipulate light at high speeds, higher than electrical equivalents. The technology is relevant for applications requiring high bandwidth and low latency, such as data centers, telecommunications, and advanced computing, such as Generative AI training.
