Silicon Valley, CA (Feb 9, 2021) - Integra Technologies, a world leader in semiconductor packaging, assembly, test, characterization and related services, today announced the successful implementation of a high accuracy fiber array waveguide attachment system focused on the Silicon Photonics market. This latest set of tools is based on the double-sided HexNano Alignment System from Physik Instrumente L.P. (PI).

“We’ve seen significant growth in Silicon Photonics over the last 10 years", said Jonny Corrao, Integra Technologies’ Silicon Valley General Manager. “With this growth, we have observed numerous inventive approaches and implementations of the technology, but PI’s solution is one of the most effective and practical we’ve encountered for fiber attach and general alignment.”

Dan Schuette, Silicon Valley Sales Manager of Physik Instrumente said, “We are pleased to have Integra become one of our partners and one of the only places in the United States to support a large number of SiPho requirements.”

Integra Technologies made the investment in this and other silicon photonics equipment to support a market that accounted for $0.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $3.77 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 21.4% during the forecast period. Some of the key factors propelling the growth of the market are increasing demand for high-speed broadband services, deployment of 5G technologies in developing nations, and growing demand for CMOS-integrated silicon photonics technology. Photonic devices contain optical systems that use silicon as the optical medium. Since silicon is used as a substrate for most ICs, the manufacturing of hybrid devices, in which electronic as well as optical components are integrated onto a single microchip, becomes more streamlined and standardized. Silicon photonics is increasingly used in the data transfer between microchips, through optical rays. Moreover, they are capable of carrying a large amount of data in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional electrical conductors.
