We present a matrix addressing approach to drive thermo-optic silicon phase shifters with integrated diodes,
allowing time-multiplexed access to the heaters, which reduces the number of pads necessary to drive large
silicon photonics circuits. We also demonstrate that such heaters can be driven using digitally modulated signals,
which increases the linearity of the phase shift response of the device.
