Technical Challenges for Silicon Photonics Transceivers for Data Center Applications

Presented at OFC 2016, Arlon Martin, Sr. Director, LinkX Marketing, Mellanox Technologies
Abstract: Silicon photonics VOAs (variable optical attenuators) have been manufactured for the past several years in quantities of 100,000s per year. Can the lessons of high-volume VOA production apply to 100Gb/s silicon photonics transceivers as they scale beyond 100k units per year?
