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.
Artificial Intelligence &
High Performance Computing
Enables new architectures to speed the process of organizing and analyzing complex data sets that will ultimately lead to deeper learning and a wellspring of new findings and ideas. Unparalleled bandwidth, power, and latency that enables glueless interconnect and memory fabrics. Unprecedented reach.
Provides exceptional bandwidth, power, and connectivity for TEM (telco equipment manufacturers) to enable 5G at scale. Optical doesn’t interfere with 5G signals. Unprecedented reach for cloud, enables new era of disaggregated design/flexibility.
Facilitates next generation of real-time digital beamforming solutions by handling data movement from antenna elements through the backend processing compute infrastructure.
Light Detection and Ranging
Allows for advanced sensing solutions for autonomous driving and robotic systems.
