SuperNova multi-wavelength optical source from Ayar is being shown live at ECOC using Sivers’ CW-WDM-compliant DFB laser array.

Sivers Photonics, formerly CST Global of Glasgow, Scotland, UK, will be present at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2022) at Basel Congress Center, Switzerland, according to Sivers Semiconductors AB of Kista, Sweden, which provides chips and integrated modules. Booth 616 will host Sivers Photonics (19–21 September).

With integrated optical I/Os for artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, high-performance computing (HPC), 5G, and light detection & ranging, Sivers Photonics’ 8-wavelength distributed feedback (DFB) laser array will be shown off in a joint live demonstration with Ayar Labs of Santa Clara, California, USA (LiDAR). To guide guests through the live demonstration, teams from Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs will be on hand the whole time.

The technologies from Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs are both completely MSA compliant because they are founding and promoter members of the Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi-Source Agreement (CW-WDM MSA). The CW-WDM MSA was established in 2020 to standardize WDM CW sources in O-band for the next advanced integrated optics applications that are anticipated to transition to 8, 16, and 32 wavelengths. These higher wavelength counts enable a leap in performance, efficiency, cost, and bandwidth scaling compared to earlier technology generations, which is required for developing applications like AI, high-speed computing, and high-density optics. The market for silicon photonic dies is expected to reach $1.1 billion by 2026, according to Yole Development’s “Silicon Photonics, Market and Technology Report 2021.”

Additionally, on September 19 at 2:05 PM on the Market Focus stage in the exhibition area, Sivers Photonics’ chief technology officer Andrew McKee will deliver a lecture titled “Advanced InP DFB Laser Sources for Silicon Photonics Hybrid Integration.”
