Infinera [MAY '12 – SEPTEMBER '12]

Hardware Development Intern


At Infinera, my goal was to further optimize and automate testing of PICs (photonics integrated chips). I was responsible for thoroughly understanding the subcircuits of the PIC to test, generating the testing protocol, writing high-level interface software for photonics lab equipment, placing the results in a database, and analyzing the results.

  • Developed software drivers for bench lab equipment to automate testing
  • Implemented optical module test suite with custom drivers
  • Worked with PIC-level optical components for the testing framework
  • Performed statistical analysis on test results to tune accuracy improvements with feedback
