Fabless access to wafer-scale silicon photonics technology is moving silicon photonics closer to becoming a mainstream technology and opens up new exciting areas for research at the same time. It is only by using wafer-scale technology that this emerging field will be able to realise its promise: to become a disruptive technology. At the basis of the rationale for silicon photonics is a complex of photonic functions integrated on a single chip, coupled to a stable, high-yield volume fabrication technology base. ePIXfab is a service platform offering R&D oriented access to state-of-the-art 200 mm wafer-scale CMOS technology optimised for silicon photonics purposes.
