Ayar Labs General Information

Description

Developer of an electronic-photonic chipset designed for applications that require high bandwidth, low latency, and power-efficient short-reach interconnects. The company uses industry-standard cost-effective silicon processing techniques to develop high-speed, high-density, low-power optical-based interconnect chipsets and lasers to replace traditional electrical-based I/O, enabling companies to keep up with volumes of data by miniaturizing fiber optic transceivers and making them in silicon chips, bringing the super-high bandwidths and low energy use of fiber optics inside computers.
