OFC 2022 Points To The Benefits Of CPO


Vector Photonics says that PCSELs are the most promising semiconductor laser solution for CPO and next-generation data processing

Vector Photonics' PCSELs are the most promising semiconductor laser solution for CPO [co-packaged optics] and next-generation data processing applications, says Adam Carter, business development director at the company.

“OFC 2022 showed that CPO technology is the clear favourite for next-generation, data processing applications. Vector Photonics' PCSELs are an obvious fit. They demonstrate the levels of coherent optical power required for CPO, from a single device. They also emit light from their top surface, making their packaging simpler,” said Carter, who is based in Silicon Valley.

As computing and data centre industries demand faster data processing, electronic-based, data processing technology is reaching its technical limit, where the number of processing cores and their associated cooling need more electrical power than is viable. CPO, a light-based, photonic technology, is recognised as the future of even faster, data processing.

The target specification for Vector Photonics all-semiconductor PCSELs is to deliver the coherent, optical power that the emerging, CPO technology requires.
