Disaggregated System Architectures with Optical I/O

In-Package Optical I/O Will Unleash the Full Potential of AI

Today’s enterprise-level artificial intelligence (AI) models are growing in both size and sophistication at an unprecedented rate. Unfortunately, the traditional architectures found in data centers cannot satisfy the evolving demands of these AI systems. An emerging solution is to employ the composability capabilities provided by disaggregated system architectures. However, the full potential of disaggregated architectures can be achieved only by means of advanced in-package optical input/output (I/O) technology.
