Ayar Labs in the News
While the semiconductor industry banks on a late 2023 comeback after several months of waning demand, the hype around generative AI has rejuvenated interest in specialized processors and other semiconductor technologies that can run such workloads faster and more efficiently.
Silicon Valley chip startup Ayar Labs raised another $25 million after its latest funding round closed, as demand has increased for faster, more energy-efficient computing for artificial intelligence applications, the company said on Wednesday.
Ayar Labs, the Santa Clara developer of silicon photonics technology that is closely involved with some of the biggest names in computing and data centers, has topped up its funding by $25 million.
Yole: Leveraging optical chip-to-chip connectivity to unleash the complete potential of AI – An interview with Ayar Labs
Co-packaged optics (CPO) has gained attention recently due to its power efficiency in data centers. While most leading proponents of CPO targeting networking applications have discontinued CPO programs due to macroeconomic headwinds, the situation of CPO for artifical Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems is different. AI models have an insatiable demand for computing power, storage, and data movement, and traditional architectures are becoming the main bottleneck for scaling ML.
