The PIXAPP Prototype Packaging Platform is designed to provide a cost-effective means of developing prototype PIC packages. These packages use standardised electro-opto-mechanical designs which reduces costs and speeds up development and assembly times.
Grating Coupler Based Generic Package
For PICs with <22 DC electrical connections, “off-the-shelf” PCBs are available for rapid prototyping using the PIXAPP-GCP-10 design. For PICs with larger electrical and optical port numbers, the more flexible PIXAPP-GCP-100 design is available. Contact PIXAPP to learn more about the design rules for using these packages.
Edge Coupler Based Generic Package
For PICs with a low number of DC electrical connections (<50), the PIXAPP PIXAPP-ECP-10 prototype package can be used optical and electrical packaging. For PICs with a larger number of electrical connections and higher optical port numbers, the more flexible PIXAPP-ECP-100 design is available.
