Launched by the European Commission in 2008 and completed at the end of 2012, HELIOS focused on developing essential building blocks like efficient optical sources (silicon-based and heterogeneous integration of III-V on silicon), integrated lasers, high-speed modulators and photo-detectors. The project, which had 19 members, also combined and packaged these building blocks to demonstrate complex functions that address a variety of industrial needs: these include a 10Gb/s modulator integrated with an electronic BiCMOS driver, a 16x10 Gb/s transceiver for WDM-PON applications, a photonic QAM-10Gb/s wireless transmission system and a mixed analog-and-digital transceiver module for multi-function antennas. The project also demonstrated a complete design flow, integrating both silicon photonics device design and electronic/photonic system design in an EDA-compatible framework.
