InP100 Product Platform

Integrated design and manufacturing services for a broad range of photonic devices including FP & DFB Lasers, SOAs, RSOAs and Detectors. This common design and manufacturing framework for InP photonics devices, uses established and reliable process modules to produce a broad range of device types on 100mm wafers. We have introduced the InP100 platform approach at exactly the point when optical communications and sensing applications require a single-chip, nanoscale solution to meet volume, power, performance and cost demands.
