Introducing the FormFactor Autonomous Silicon Photonics (SiPh)

FormFactor understands a test engineer‘s goal is to make measurements. An integrated, verified solution will prevent engineers from spending valuable time on long development projects. We have developed all the tools, fixtures and calibration techniques to enable you to measure your photonic devices in days instead of months or years.

FormFactor’s Autonomous Silicon Photonics Measurement Assistant is a highly flexible solution that enables quick changeover for a multitude of testing needs from single fibers to arrays and from vertical coupling to edge coupling.

Our Photonics Integration Kit and the revolutionary OptoVue Calibration Kit, will get you productionproven, optimized optical measurements right after installation.
