Driver: Growing focus on reducing power consumption using silicon photonic transceivers

The utilization of optical interconnects and silicon photonic transceivers eliminates this issue of the limited spectral range. Also, components such as transceivers interconnects, and switches used in communication networks based on silicon photonics technology consume less power. Companies such as CISCO and Intel have come up with optical switches that consume low power (i.e., 0.6 mW) and can provide high switching speed of 6 ns. Traditional products are based on board-to-board and computer-to-computer integrations, but silicon photonic products are based on the on-chip integration, which not only reduces the product size but also helps reduce power consumption

Challenge: Embedding silicon photonic components into small circuits

Implanting different types of silicon photonic components into a 220-nanometer integrated circuit is a critical task. Also, due to the thermal effect, it is a big challenge to embed these components at a nanometer scale. Silicon photonic devices are highly sensitive to waveguide dimensions, thereby requiring nanometer-scale control over a full wafer and having a considerable variation in a silicon-refractive index. It is possible to overcome this challenge with active tuning and temperature control, but this can severely impact the power consumption of the optical link.

Transceivers to witness highest CAGR in silicon photonics market during the forecast period

Transceivers are used in a variety of applications, such as high-performance computing, data center, and telecommunication. With major technological advancements in silicon photonics, it is possible to transfer data at a speed of up to 400 Gbps. Intel’s 100G PSM4 QSFP28 optical transceiver is capable of sending data at a speed of 100 Gbps. The rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic led to decreased sales of silicon photonic devices, especially in 2020. However, a quick jump is expected in the sales of silicon photonic products in the coming years, primarily to fulfill the pending requirement.

Lasers to have the largest market size of silicon photonic components during the forecast period

Hybrid silicon lasers (silicon and group III-V semiconductor) are used to overcome mass-production issues in silicon lasers, and it is one of the key reasons for the growing demand for lasers in the silicon photonics market. The hybrid approach takes advantage of the light-emitting properties of III-V semiconductor materials combined with the process maturity of silicon to fabricate electrically driven lasers on a silicon wafer that can be integrated into other silicon photonic devices. Companies in the silicon photonics market are working on the same. For instance, Intel is working on hybrid silicon lasers with indium phosphide-based materials and other compound semiconductor materials.
