YOUR PARTNER FOR PRODUCTIZATION

Benchmark’s photonics expertise is housed in our Microwave & Photonics Center of Excellence in Phoenix, Arizona. In this vertically-integrated facility, we partner with your team to take your product from design specifications into production, developing and implementing manufacturing and test processes for high-reliability products. Whether you are looking to jointly develop your design or need built-to-print services, our experience with novel materials, RF systems, microelectronics process development, optical alignment, and test development make Benchmark the ideal choice for photonics and mixed technology modules and assemblies.

TEST AND VALIDATION

Test and measurement platforms enable both process development and production, including tunable lasers, polarization synthesizers, and optical power meters to measure bit error rate test (BERT), polarization-dependent loss (PDL), and return loss (RL) of passive optical components. These platforms are used across the design, development, and manufacturing workflow to verify the performance of complex light-based communications systems and conduct comprehensive characterizations of optical components and network elements. We leverage these same technologies in our optical integration capabilities.

PHOTONICS CAPABILITIES INCLUDE
  • Photonics packaging assembly supporting PIC and Silicon Photonics
  • Photonics test capabilities to PAM-4 56Gb
  • MCM, SiP, and 2.5/3D microelectronic packaging
  • Multiple-technology integration, including high-speed digital, photonics, fiber optic, microwave, and millimeter-wave technologies
