Shanghai, March.02, 2023 – SiLUX Technologies Inc. (“SiLUX”), the designer and developer of silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and optical engine for the data center and telecommunication markets, today announced that it will conduct a live demonstration of its 800G optical engine together with its partner Source Photonics Inc. (“Source”) in QSFP-DD800 form factor. The live demonstration will take place at booth #3029 during the upcoming OFC’23 Conference in San Diego, CA from March 7 – 9, 2023.
The 800G optical transceiver module owned by Source Photonics is integrated with SiLUX's novel high performance silicon photonics (SiPho) optical engine, which incorporates SilUX’s Silicon Photonic Modulator PIC with a small size of 6.5mmx5.25mm and two continuous wave (CW) lasers that each supports four lanes. The 800G Sipho Modulator PIC monolithically integrates multiple modulators, splitters, waveguides and coupling structures, and enables high-speed modulation of light operating at 100Gb/s PAM4 signaling for data transmission.
The demonstrated 800G DR8 Sipho transceivers are designed to work seamlessly with Source Photonics’ industrial leading CW laser chips. It exceeds the optical interface specifications of IEEE P802.3df D2.0 for 800GBASE-DR8. It supports links over 500m and 2km for fiber breakout into 100GBASE-DR1 and 100GBASE-FR1. It leverages the state of the art 5nm DSP silicon and is packaged into type 2 QSFP-DD800 form-factor with dual MPO-12 connectors.
“We are happy to team up with SiLUX for this critical live demonstration, which represents a key milestone for each company,” said Dr. Frank Chang, Chief Engineer and CTO of Source Photonics Inc. “Future 800G optical transceivers reply on silicon photonics to address the increasing need for high capacity density and energy efficiency at lower cost. Together with our partners in the industry, we are thrived to bring high reliability and compelling cost per bit solution to our customers worldwide. The fully integrated PICs designed by SiLUX will result in lower cost and the ability to rapidly scale production. With these advantages, SiPho technologies will remain a very competitive choice for 800G application and the potential in 1.6T and beyond, and will continuously catch the attention of leading systems companies and hyperscale data centers all over the world.”
