PHIX assembled another 1.6 Tb/s optical transceiver module as part of the POETICS Project, this time incorporating flexible RF electrical transmission lines developed by Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI. These FlexLines offer superior impedance matching and shielding capabilities over traditional wire bonds and PHIX demonstrated a flip chip process for attaching them between photonic and electronic components in a single manufacturing step. The module is under testing.
As part of the POETICS Project PHIX assembled this 1.6 Tb/s optical transceiver module. It involves the co-integration of a photonic motherboard, directly modulated lasers and photodetectors with high-speed electronic integratedcircuits.
