PHOTONICS-SOI

For high-speed optical transceivers in data centers

Our SOI products address the requirement of optical function integration onto a CMOS chip for low-cost and high-speed optical transceivers.

SERVICE GOES TO CLOUD

With the mobility era, all services are moving to the cloud. From email and files sharing to applications such as car sharing and fitness tracking, more computing functions are relying on efficient and high-speed data centers. Optical technology gives next generation data centers the fast transmission speeds that they need .

CMOS PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGY

Optical devices made in a CMOS fab

Data centers are a collection of thousands of server racks, all interconnected with high-data rate cables.
These datacom links require optical transmission to improve data rate and reduce power consumption.
Soitec’s Photonics-SOI wafers enable standard CMOS fab to produce optical transmitter and receiver chips, that provide high-data rate and cost-effective solutions for data center interconnections of 40Gbps and beyond.
