Global IP traffic will increase 3x over the next 5 years to 3.3ZB pa (CAGR 24%), having increased 127x from 2005, creating an enormous market for fibre optic communications components. The EU has built a significant proportion of GDP on digital activities. The datacentre infrastructure required to deliver such services must embrace step changes in data rate improvements to keep pace with demand, but require reliable, mass produced, high quality optical transceivers to achieve this aim.
MISCA aims to lever semiconductor material integration to deliver disruptive, scalable component platforms, addressing demands of next generation telecommunications and datacommunications optical infrastructure. Project partners will use intelligent monolithic integration of compound semiconductor materials platforms to deliver high-speed detector solutions with co-optimised RF and optical performance.
