Ayar Labs, founded in 2015, is pursuing optics as a means of driving higher interconnect speeds and efficiencies in computing. Now, the company is announcing that it plans to demonstrate a staggering 4Tbps optical solution at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC) i
In an interview with HPCwire, Ayar Labs CEO Charlie Wuischpard called the solution 'the full realization of 'Ayar Labs'' commercial-grade product' and discussed the future of the company and its products.
But first, some technical details. The optical solution that Ayar Labs will be demoing consists of two key components: a SuperNova laser light source and a TeraPHY optical I/O chiplet. According to Ayar Labs, each SuperNova powers eight fiber links, each of which, in turn, is capable of 256Gbps. That gets you 2.048Tbps in each direction, or 4.096Tbps bidirectional.
