Silicon photonics has been selected by a growing number of industrial players to develop their next generation transceivers, typically towards 100GbE based on various 4x25Gb/s architectures. Future systems will aim at 400GbE relying on 8x50Gb/s architectures for instance. To support this bandwidth scaling imec has developed a single-chip silicon photonics solution capable of data rates at 50Gb/s and beyond. In this paper we will review the key building blocks of imec’s 200mm silicon photonics platform (ISIPP200) technology that enable modulation and detection at such data rates.
