Enabling the next phase of Moore’s Law through optical connectivity
Ayar Labs solves the I/O bandwidth and power bottlenecks by moving data using light.
Dramatically improving I/O performance at lower power
Enabling new system architectures and topologies
Improving resiliency and reach
Ayar Labs is disrupting the traditional performance, cost, and efficiency curves of the semiconductor and computing industries by delivering a 1000x improvement in interconnect bandwidth density at 10x lower 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.
Miss us at Hot Chips 2019?
President, Chief Scientist, and Co-Founder, Mark Wade presented Ayar Labs’ mission, product strategy, and collaboration with Intel.
