Sivers and Ayar to demo SuperNova with integrated laser array

Companies to show SuperNova multi-wavelength optical source with integrated 8 wavelength DFB laser array tech at ECOC 2022

At the upcoming European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) 2022, taking place at Basel Congress Centre from 18 – 22 September 2022, Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs will hold a joint live demonstration showing the Sivers 8 wavelength DFB laser array integrated into the Ayar Labs SuperNova multi-wavelength optical source.

CTO, Andrew McKee, will deliver a talk entitled “Advanced InP DFB Laser Sources for Silicon Photonics Hybrid Integration” on the Market Focus stage in the exhibition area, Monday 19th September at 2.05 pm.

As founding and promoter members of the Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi- Source Agreement (CW-WDM MSA), the solutions from Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs are both fully MSA compliant.

Established in 2020, the CW-WDM MSA was formed to standardise WDM CW sources in O-band for emerging advanced integrated optics applications that are expected to move to 8, 16, and 32 wavelengths. Such higher wavelength counts are needed for emerging applications such as AI, high performance computing, and high-density optics, and enable a leap in performance, efficiency, cost, and bandwidth scaling compared with previous technology generations.

We are excited to exhibit at this year’s ECOC, joining forces with Ayar Labs to showcase these groundbreaking solutions that are working together to enable the acceleration of Silicon Photonics for a wide variety of high-volume, low-cost applications.”, said Billy McLaughlin, MD, Sivers Photonics.
