Programmable silicon photonics is an emerging field that aims to add flexibility to optical chips by allowing the functions performed by the device to be defined after its fabrication, via programming. As the functions performed by a programmable circuit emerges from the number of reconfigurable elements in the device, there is a need to integrate a larger number of tunable components in the circuit, which results in challenges regarding driving and control. In this paper we present our techniques used to operate large scale silicon photonics circuits, with emphasis on programmable devices.
