Accelerating the Development and Application of Optical I/O in AI/ML Architectures with NVIDIA
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.

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.
