RF Photonics PEG

The RF Photonics Product Sector Emulator covers the integrated electronic-photonic technology applications that have been identified by AIM Photonics to be particularly important to meet high-speed analog communication needs over optical fiber links.  The reason for electronic-photonic integration is to utilize the existing CMOS manufacturing investment to produce low-cost analog or digital components and to increase the functionality and performance with photonic technology. 
 
In particular, the need for high-speed, low-latency is driving the need for integrated silicon photonic components. This PEG looks at several enabling technologies and focuses on trends that will be critical during the next decade.
