Ayar Labs to Accelerate Development and Application of Optical Interconnects 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.

Advancing Aerospace Applications with Optical I/O

Optical I/O: Designing the Future of Digital Beamforming and Antenna Arrays

Digital beamforming, which uses a large number of elements in antenna arrays, is the core technology driving advanced radar and communications systems for the aerospace industry. Phased array radar demands increasingly higher fidelity, which requires more elements generating more data. Only optical I/O from Ayar Labs provides the bandwidth density needed to deliver precise, higher fidelity phased array radar.

SWaP-Friendly Architectures Using Digital Beamforming and Optical I/O

The power and sophistication of modern radar systems is growing by leaps and bounds. These systems already offer capabilities that couldn’t have been dreamed of just a few short years ago. Furthermore, ongoing developments mean that these systems are poised to revolutionize sensing applications. However, there is a data bandwidth bottleneck that must be overcome to take full advantage of these state-of-the-art technologies.
