With a focus on bolstering high-speed networking technology, Aurrion was acquired by Juniper Networks in August 2016, Aurrion had been working on heterogeneous integration for silicon photonic integrated circuits (PICs). AurrionÂ’s technology is focused to leveraging the capability and low cost of silicon IC manufacturing yet retaining the performance of advanced non-silicon materials. The technology provides a bridge between traditional III-V materials used for photonics and silicon in CMOS compatible platform. Aurrion, Inc. develops hybrid silicon photonic integrated circuits. It provides a hybrid silicon photon integration platform that enables the generation of integrated photonic devices, as well as allows the wafer-scale integration of active photonic devices on a standard CMOS platform. The company offers integrated photonic component library that includes active and passive devices; and components, which comprise lasers, modulators, switches, and photo detectors compatible with integration of a variety of passive optical devices, including optical splitters, filters, and multiplexers. Aurrion, Inc. serves telecommunication, switching, sensor, and defense markets.
