Ayar Labs at OFC

Ayar Labs Booth 1511

Join Ayar Labs in Booth 1511 for a look at our newest in-package optical I/O technology. You’ll also find demos, customer projects, and more.

In-package optical I/O delivers up to five times higher data rates and 10 times lower latency, with up to eight times the power efficiency versus traditional interconnects (electrical I/O + pluggable optics).

OFC Special Session:
Moore’s Law: A Photonics Perspective for the Next Decade

Tuesday, 26 March, 14:00 – 16:00
San Diego Convention Center
Room 6D

Functional groups of transistors form CPU/GPU/NPU/TPU silicon chips of great capability. But will all this potentiality be stranded on these chips, like remote islands cut off from the outside world? Where can photonics help? Our invited experts will provide their insights.

Dig Deeper into Optical I/O

Ayar Labs Optical I/O: Shattering the Barriers to AI at Scale

Generative AI model complexity is growing exponentially. Traditional interconnects create a bottleneck for data transfer, forcing GPUs to remain idle. Optical I/O connects nodes at scale so they work like one giant GPU.

Intel & Ayar Labs: 4 Tbps Optical FPGA Demo

See 4 Tbps optically enabled FPGAs, co-developed by Intel and Ayar Labs. This video shows 4 Tbps bidirectional communication between two optically enabled Intel FPGAs using Ayar Labs TeraPHY™ optical I/O chiplets and SuperNova remote light source.

In-Package Optical I/O: Unleashing Innovation

Ayar Labs has developed the first monolithic, in-package optical I/O chiplet that eliminates the bottlenecks in traditional copper-based systems. Discover how Ayar Labs’ optical I/O unleashes AI innovation, cloud and HPC scaling, innovative aerospace systems, the next wave of 5G, and more.
