Silicon Nitride (SiN) has attracted a great interest in the photonic field over the last decades, opening a breakthrough in the telecom, sensing non-linear optics and biophotonic fields.
The purpose of this document is to compile and offer a particular overview of the current foundry service providers for photonic integrated circuits fabricated based on silicon nitride, a material whose properties may offer advantages compared to others photonic substrates.
VLC Photonics, as a fabless design and test house, has developed over the years a nourishing relationship with the major foundries that provide PIC's fabrication service. This document brings you a one-stop reference guide with technical and administrative information regarding the different SiN foundries’ facilities, technology capabilities, photonic processes, contacts information as well as photonic circuit development.
DISCLAIMER: No confidential foundry information is given in this report, this will require a separate NDA with the corresponding foundry.
