Silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs)

Silicon PIC

Acacia is a pioneer in the introduction of silicon-based PICs for coherent optical communications—the highly integrated Silicon Photonics single-chip PICs are low power and ultra-compact. Coupled with Acacia’s DSP ASIC, the combination provides a leading coherent solution in low power and size.

Acacia’s PIC is optimized for high yield, enabling high volume manufacturing. Leveraging mature CMOS processes, our Silicon Photonic PICs can eliminate the need for temperature control circuitry or costly hermetic packaging.
