Ayar Labs: Overcoming Bandwidth Bottlenecks

Faster interconnects will be critical to innovating HPC/AI systems. Ayar Labs has developed TeraPHY™, the first monolithic, in-package optical I/O chiplet that delivers up to 1000x bandwidth density at 1/10th the power of a standard electrical I/O. At the DARPA PIPES program, Intel and Ayar Labs have successfully replaced an electrical I/O with optical I/O.
