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.

Boosting Telecom Bandwidth with Optical I/O
Five Key Factors Driving the Need for Optical I/O in Telecommunications
As 5G and mmWave technologies open up new avenues of bandwidth, the industry faces challenges that stem from outdated legacy technology holding back progress in delivering connectivity. The practical truth is that copper-based interconnects and cabling are approaching their limits for the telecommunications industry — especially in the post-5G age.
Expanding Bandwidth and Flexibility for Telecommunications Using Optical I/O
5G brings an entirely new way of delivering connectivity, with beamforming technology that enables separate, narrow beams directed to individual devices. This requires much more complex systems with compact, lightweight, low-power antenna arrays.
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.
