Sicoya Demonstrates 400G Silicon Photonics Technology


Sicoya, the leading innovator of monolithically integrated Silicon Photonics, has announced it will demonstrate its 400G Silicon Photonics technology at OFC 2019.  The demonstration is based on a pluggable module based on Sicoya's 400G Electronic-Photonic Integrated Circuit(EPIC) Engine. The EPIC Engine, which is a highly-integrated silicon photonics IC targeting reach of 500 m and beyond over single mode optical fibers, fits leading edge form factors for the 400G data center market such as QSFP-DD, OSFP and COBO.

The demonstration will showcase Sicoya's leadership in the emerging 400G Datacenter Interconnect market. Today's hyperscale datacenters require vast amounts of data to be transferred from any point within the datacenter to another. A significant portion of these connections in hyperscale datacenters are as long as 500m with speeds of up to 400Gb/s.  Sicoya's wafer-scale silicon photonics platform offers lower power and cost while increasing performance and scalability versus traditional manufacturing techniques.
