    In January 2018, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) released its Optoelectronic Devices Industry Technology Roadmap, a five-year plan to improve China’s capabilities in the optoelectronics industry. Although the plan spans a wide range of fundamental technologies in the optical domain, there is a strong focus on optical communications devices, which will have a significant impact on the global optical components industry supporting optical transport and networking.

    When Gordon Moore made the observation that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles every two years, known as Moore’s law, he also predicted technological limitations would eventually lead to the end of this era, with successive generations either seeing less than 2x growth in transistor count or taking longer than two years. An argument that we have already reached these limitations is currently supported by the lag between Intel’s 14 nm and 10 nm PC CPU introduction. Additionally, silicon manufacturers have questioned the investment required to maintain Moore’s law, with Samsung reporting Moore’s law affordability challenges in 2016 and TSMC’s quarterly earnings showing wafer revenue from advanced process technology dropping between 2008 and 2016.
