What does open PDK really mean?

OpenLight’s open PDK (product development kit) allows customers to design their own, next-generation PASIC, for existing, new and emerging applications.

It gives customers access to a comprehensive library of photonics components which are heterogeneously integrated on the PASIC. This includes active components like tuneable lasers, optical amplifiers, DFB’s, EA-modulators and photo detectors. OpenLight’s heterogenous, integration approach removes the need to source and package separate lasers on silicon photonics chips and improves device performance, with very low loss between active components and waveguides. In addition, OpenLight will guarantee PASIC designs developed with its PDK, with the option to produce the PASICs for customers using its foundry partners.

Many Silicon Photonics manufacturers are claiming open PDK capability, however, the PIC design must be produced entirely on their own platform, using their own components.
