- New high-speed I/O connectivity based on photonics
- Intel wafer-scale manufacturing with hybrid laser
- Platform for future high-density switch integration
Intel Silicon Photonics combines the manufacturing scale and capability of silicon with the power of light onto a single chip. Intel builds silicon-based components that transmit and receive optical signals, moving vast amounts of information at 100 to 1600 Gigabits per second over long distances of up to several kilometers of fiber optic cables.
Today, Intel's pluggable modules connect Ethernet switches in large data centers. As demand for bandwidth increases, silicon photonics co-packaged with switch ASICs will provide the bandwidth density necessary to scale future data center networks.
