It’s no surprise that the global silicon photonics market is growing rapidly. The ever-increasing demand for lightning-fast data rates and communication speeds, coupled with the push to optimize device size and packaging, is driving industry growth at double-digit rates. In fact, silicon-photonic transceivers are expected to represent at least 30% of the total transceiver market by 2027. Is your organization prepared to move with the market, or will you be left behind?

Precision motion control is a key element in the development and production of silicon-photonic devices. Yet, when nanometers matter, it can be challenging to evaluate and implement motion solutions that are both fast and accurate. This webinar offers guidance and best-practices for navigating and selecting the positioning mechanics and controls needed to get the job done with speed and precision.

Learn about the most important aspects of precision motion control as they relate to cutting-edge silicon photonics applications and manufacturing challenges. Gain a better understanding of core motion technologies and specifications; explore the pros and cons of different types of motion solutions including direct-drive nanopositioners, air bearings and hexapods; and discover how and why to develop a positioning-error budget. Examine the ins and outs of how to choose the ideal controller to amplify your system’s performance.

Engineers, researchers, production managers and executives who are engaged in the silicon photonics market will gain valuable insight into effective strategies to select and deploy precision motion control to maximize process throughput, improve yield and scale the process from lab to fab. After this webinar, you will be better equipped to engage in meaningful and productive conversations with precision motion control suppliers. This knowledge will better enable you to rapidly and precisely bring your silicon photonics solutions to market.

Attendees will learn:

1. Overview of the fundamentals of precision motion, including understanding common sources of error
2. How and why to develop a motion error budget
3. Important factors to consider when evaluating stage technologies and architecture
4. Considerations for choosing controller and drive technologies
