CompoundTek Partners with Southampton Silicon Photonics Group to Offer Design Services
Combined design and foundry services expected to accelerate new industry entrants
Singapore, 27 February 2019 – CompoundTek, a global foundry services leader in emerging silicon photonic solutions has partnered with the Silicon Photonics Group at the University of Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), to offer silicon photonics design services.
The Silicon Photonics Group was founded by Professor Graham Reed to support UK silicon photonics research and spans than 25 years. The Group has developed designs which has since become the industry standard in data centres, telecoms, and high-performance computing applications.
This unique industry partnership aims to accelerate the adoption of silicon photonics technology, a key enabler to transporting high levels of data, instrumental in enhancing operational efficiency and capacity within data centres. Silicon photonics technology is also paving the way for emerging applications such as data transfer, autonomous vehicles, telecoms, biomedical and artificial intelligence.
