Franck ERNULT is the Director of Account Management and Marketing at Advanced Micro Foundry (AMF). In his role, he supports customers through the development of targeted Si Photonics solutions in close relationship with AMF R&D teams. Prior to joining AMF, he held multiple R&D positions in Singapore and Japan where he led research and development teams focusing on advanced memory technologies.Franck holds a Ph.D in Physics from Joseph Fourier University, France and a Master of Business Administration from the National University of Singapore.
Si Photonics plays an increasing role in Telecommunication and Data Centre applications and is at the centre of development activities in applications ranging from LiDAR to optical computing and sensing. To support this expansion, foundry services based on a broad platform are necessary. While such services provide a versatile offering and attractive solutions to multiple industries, they can be reinforced by the deployment of application specific PDKs. This talk will present this approach, currently implemented at AMF to offer customers a selection of carefully designed devices that can support the fast deployment of relevant solutions.
