Intel and Ayar Labs 4 Tbps Optical FPGA Demonstration

At OCP Global Summit 2023, Ayar Labs and Intel will showcase a 4 Tbps optical FPGA with Ayar Labs’ in-package optical I/O. You’ll see 4 Tbps bidirectional communication between two optically enabled Intel FPGAs using Ayar Labs TeraPHY™ optical I/O chiplets and SuperNova™ light sources. Data generated from each FPGA is optically transmitted from one board and received and verified on the other board.

Special Focus: Optical Connectivity for AI Clusters
The Next Wave of Computing with Optical I/O

The accelerating growth of generative AI model parameter sizes along with the need to scale data center performance and efficiency through composable architectures are pushing the limits of traditional interconnect technologies. The latest advancements in optical I/O, a new generation of chiplet and multi-wavelength photonic solutions, provide dramatically increased bandwidth, at lower latency, over longer distances, and at a fraction of the power of existing solutions.

In this talk, we present the convergence of trends in compute applications as well as new optical products, technologies, and ecosystems that will scale over several generations, leading to opportunities to build paradigm-shifting system architectures addressing AI/ML, HPC, and cloud computing applications.
