(37:45 + Q&A) Plenary Talk: Nan Wang, Sr. Director, Technology and Quality, Supply Chain Operations, Cisco Systems, Inc.
ABSTRACT: The accelerated pace of digital transformation drives significant growth in internet data traffic and connectivity through a faster optical network. Silicon Photonics Technology is a key enabler for scaling next-generation networking architectures. It offers compelling benefits in high-bandwidth, low-power, low-cost pluggable optics, Digital Coherent Optics (DCO), and paves the road for the next transition to co-packaged optics. At the same time, the design, productization, and scaling of Silicon Photonics technology have their complexity and challenges. In this talk, we will take a closer look into the SiPho integration, reliability, testing, and supply chain eco-system:
— Heterogeneous integration of electrical and optical process technologies is critical for low-cost, high-volume Si-Photonics packaging.
— Convergence of ASIC and Optics requires advanced packaging technologies and an integration architecture to address both component- and system-level requirements.
— Standardization in Reliability/Qualification and Innovative Design for Testability will be key factors for success.
— Most importantly, the strong momentum and roadmap behind Silicon Photonics are driving the need for a more mature supply chain eco-system to achieve economies of scale and harvest the full benefit of this technology.

Nan Wang has been with Cisco Systems for 21 years, where he serves as Sr. Director in the Technology and Quality organization within Cisco’s global Supply Chain Operations. He leads the Component Quality and Technology Group, with focus on strategic component technology development for next generation products across Cisco. In recent years, his team has been focusing on component technology innovations, such as Silicon Photonics and 2.5D/3D ICs, to enable the next generation of the networking applications and accelerate the digital transformation.
