Singapore-based silicon photonic foundry services provider CompoundTek has partnered with the Silicon Photonics Group at the University of Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) – based in the Zepler Institute for Photonics and Nanoelectronics at the UK’s University of Southampton - to offer silicon photonics design services.

Founded by professor Graham Reed at the University of Surrey in 1989 to support UK silicon photonics research, the Silicon Photonics Group has developed designs which have since become the industry standard in data centers, telecoms and high-performance computing applications, it is said.

This industry partnership aims to accelerate the adoption of silicon photonics technology as a key enabler to transporting high levels of data, instrumental in enhancing operational efficiency and capacity within data centers. Silicon photonics technology is also paving the way for emerging applications such as data transfer, autonomous vehicles, telecoms, biomedical and artificial intelligence.

CompoundTek says that, as it continues to gain traction and progress with customer expansion globally, it can offer combined design and foundry services that are expected to accelerate new industry entrants. Led by Reed, the design partnership with the ORC aims to facilitate new entrants into the silicon photonics industry by giving them access to value-added design services backed by CompoundTek’s foundry fabrication service.

“CompoundTek looks forward to providing the marketplace silicon photonics’ design capabilities as a value-added service in addition to our existing foundry fabrication services,” says CEO Raj Kumar. “This strategic partnership reflects CompoundTek’s commitment to developing advanced solutions with real commercial benefits.”

As one of the few global foundries or companies equipped to manufacture silicon photonics, CompoundTek’s services includes end-to-end industry expertise from process technology to product co-design to manufacturing with strategic design partners. The firm exhibited its silicon photonics solutions at the Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition (OFC 2019) in San Diego, CA, USA (3-7 March).
