At the device level, extensive testing demonstrated full compliance to GR-468. Testing beyond Telcordia requirements resulted in demonstrating >10,000 hours high temperature operating life (HTOL) against a requirement of 2,000 hours, and extensive accelerated aging testing demonstrated a 50+ year lifetime for the four-channel devices.
At the optical transceiver level, full compliance was demonstrated to GR-468, GR-326 and GR-1217 standards. Testing beyond Telcordia requirements resulted in demonstration of 2,000 hours of unbiased damp heat against a 1,000-hour requirement.
This qualification, especially the extended HPIC HTOL and accelerated aging results, undeniably demonstrates best-in-class reliability for Skorpios' HPIC technology platform. The qualification of the HPIC Platform enables Skorpios to offer products with the performance of traditional III-V optoelectronic devices, the cost advantages of traditional silicon photonics and the scalability for next generation products that neither traditional III-V nor traditional silicon photonics can achieve.
"With a technology platform passed full Telcordia qualification with no issues and demonstrated industry-leading lifetimes, Skorpios secures a commanding position in current and future applications requiring high levels of photonic integration with many lasers and modulators on a single die" said Glenn Li, CTO for Skorpios Technologies.
