Enabling the next phase of Moore’s Law through optical connectivity
Ayar Labs solves I/O bandwidth and power bottlenecks by moving data using light.
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.
