Ansys and GLOBALFOUNDRIES Team to Accelerate Photonic Integrated Circuit Design

Ansys has teamed up with GLOBALFOUNDRIES© (GF©), the world’s leading specialty semiconductor manufacturer, to address the needs of the digital world through integrated photonics design.

GF enables designers to leverage the power of light for advanced optical applications with a high-performance monolithically integrated photonics solution in an optimized footprint that requires only half the area of discrete solutions. This monolithic solution integrates a high performance RF CMOS and photonics components in a single chip to deliver higher bandwidth between data center servers and faster connections between data centers along the telecommunication infrastructure.

With its silicon photonics (SiPh) technologies and advanced packaging capabilities, GF enables high-performance optical connectivity designed to keep pace with the demands of metro, long haul and intra/inter data center applications, while maximizing reach and energy efficiency.
