4th Training in Photonic Integrated Circuits


  • Keysight Technologies 5301 Stevens Creek Boulevard Santa Clara, CA, 95051 United States (map)

After three successful annual training events in 2015-2017 with very enthusiastic reactions, a fourth training is now organized in the week of Jan 28-Feb 1, 2019 at Keysight Technologies in Santa Clara, California. The training is one-stop-shop and covers all the essential topics for producing PICs - system aspects, component tutorial, simulations & chip layout, foundry services (all material systems - Si, InP, & dielectrics), packaging, test & measurement, and business/marketing essentials. It is supported by a broad consortium of over 23 PIC companies and is hands-on, in-depth and practical.
