TypeProduct IDPrice, EURDescription
CharacterisationVLC-CHAstarting at 2000VLC will characterize the fabricated photonic integrated circuit, by performing electrical and optical measurements of both building blocks and circuits, ideally supported by test structures. Characterization includes optical and electrical testing of builidng blocks and, when possible, circuit level measurements. A full characterization report will be provided afterwards in electronic pdf format. Prices depend on the number of dies to be measured, the number of structures per die, and the type of measurements for each structure.
