Collaborating with GlobalFoundries® to Develop Fotonix Next-Gen Silicon Photonics Process

Revolutionizing Chip-to-Chip Communication

Ayar Labs is disrupting the traditional performance, cost, and efficiency curves of the semiconductor and computing industries by delivering up to a 1000x improvement in interconnect bandwidth density at one-tenth the power. We use standard CMOS processing to develop high-speed, high-density, low-power optical interconnect “chiplets” and lasers to replace traditional electrical I/O.

Technical Brief:

Optical I/O Chiplets Eliminate Bottlenecks to Unleash Innovation

This technical brief examines the evolution of optical communications in computing systems and the transition to ‘Phase Two’ of Moore’s Law through in-package optical I/O (OIO). Increasing demand for artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, aerospace data collection and communication, hyper-scale data centers, disaggregated memory, and storage has led to the development of a variety of powerful, high-throughput, system-on-chip (SoC) solutions that redefine traditional computing architectures.

Technical Paper

An Error-free 1 Tbps WDM Optical I/O Chiplet and Multi-wavelength Multi-port Laser

In this paper we demonstrate a 128 Gbps/port (8-λ×16 Gbps/λ) natively error-free transmission across eight optical ports using a 8-port, 8-λ/port WDM remote laser source and a pair of monolithically integrated CMOS optical I/O chiplets with 4.96-5.56 pJ/bit optical Tx+Rx chiplet energy efficiency.
