Indium-Phosphide Pilot Line for up-scaled, low-barrier, self-sustained, PIC ecosystem
InPulse in a nutshell
InPulse is the EC Manufacturing Pilot Line project for photonic integrated circuits. InPulse is the Indium-Phosphide Pilot Line for up-scaled, low-barrier, self-sustained, PIC ecosystem
InP photonic integrated circuits (PICs) offer game changing performance capabilities across multiple market sectors. InPulse is the EC Manufacturing Pilot Line which puts in place the technological and operational processes to:
1) Accelerate the uptake of PIC technology in new markets
2) Align scalable and inter-locking services and value chains
3) Accelerate time to market with predictive design for fewer and faster design cycles
4) Offer foundry processes at TRL7, sharing process optimization across products
InPulse combines low entrance-threshold, mature-manufacturing to enable tens of European PIC innovators. InPulse partners already play a pioneering role in open access InP PICs. The technology is available for experimental prototypes through JePPIX.
InPulse enable high TRL development in a scalable design kit driven process, driving open access InP PICs from proof of concept to industrial prototyping and pre-production.
