SMART Photonics launches new building blocks (PDK)

Stand 406

7th September 2021

Recently SMART Photonics launched its next generation building blocks for the production of Photonics Integrated Circuits.

This platform (Gen 2) enables manufacturing of high-speed application products.


  • Introduction of a Semi-Insulating Substrate- An improved electrical isolation between the components on the chip
  • Beyond 25 GBaud and is ready to support further the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth
  • Smarter ways to build Photonic Integrated Circuits
  • Allowing the integration of a large number of lasers, amplifiers and passive components in a single circuit
  • The platform demonstrated the capability to deliver widely tuneable lasers covering up to 75 nm and with narrow linewidths in the order of 100 kHz
