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.

Revolutionizing Chip-to-Chip Communication Across Industry Verticals

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.
