Two year, €1.2 million project to develop next generation photodetectors for high speed datacoms

A UK and Netherlands consortium of semiconductor device specialists has been awarded a two year, €1.2Million project to develop next generation photodetector solutions for ultra-high speed data-communications applications.

The Compound Semiconductor Centre (CSC) will deliver project MISCA (Monolithically Integrated Detector Solutions for Next Generation Communications Applications) in collaboration with Integrated Compound Semiconductors (ICS) Ltd of Manchester, and VTEC Lasers and Sensors of Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Project lead, Wyn Meredith, director of CSC, commented: "The project aims to drive a radical improvement in component performance via advances in semiconductor materials integration and will result in a new European source of high performance detector products for fibre optic data-communications applications."

Mohamed Missous, founder and CEO of ICS said: "The rapid growth of the high speed optical transceiver market is an exciting opportunity for ICS as the demands of the 100G/200G/400G optical transmission markets require a deep understanding of RF component design to complement high quality optoelectronic device manufacture."

Jan Mink, CEO of VTEC added: "The Eurostars programme is specifically aimed at enabling agile SMEs to collaborate across Europe, and gives VTEC a great opportunity to collaborate with like-minded companies in the UK to extend our value chain. We see great potential in using semiconductor component integration to enable a new class of low power consumption, high performance detector products."



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.
