Silicon photonic interposers for 400Gb/s and beyond optical interconnects

Imec has teamed up with two imec research groups at Ghent University to build the next-generation 400Gb/s optical links for data center applications. The teams used imec’s Si photonics platform, and implemented modulation formats such as NRZ, and the more advanced EDB and PAM-4 formats to span larger distances and be compliant with industry standards.
