INSPIRE: new video released

INSPIRE projects has released a video! INSPIRE consortium aims to revolutionize photonic integrated circuit technology by combining the generic integrated foundry technology developed at Smart Photonics, and the silicon photonics pioneer IMEC, with the micro-transfer printing technology developed at X-Celeprint. INSPIRE has the ambition to strengthen the European manufacturing base by developing methods for SiN – InP integration which will remove expensive assembly steps in PIC-based product realization. Since the optical coupling happens through a silicon intermediate layer, the technology can be further ported to silicon CMOS photonics as well. INSPIRE will connect state-of-the-art manufacturing capability to leading-edge applications and also to industry clusters through JePPIX, ePIXfab and the EC manufacturing pilot lines. Learn more here
