Skorpios Demonstrates Industry-First 100G System-on-Chip, Fully Integrated Opto-electronics Rx and Tx ICs

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Skorpios Technologies, Inc. announces an industry-first 100G-CWDM System-on-Chip fully integrated opto-electronic S-roC receiver integrated circuit (IC) and S-toC transmitter IC. S-xoC 100G-CWDM ICs integrate silicon photonics optical ICs, transmit and receive electronic ICs and single-mode fiber (SMF) coupling all in one dense semiconductor IC package.

The data center market is poised to deploy 100G networking in large volume. The demand for SMF duplex fiber infrastructure; low power, high-density scalability to 400G; and commodity economics are higher than ever before. Skorpios' S-xoC family gives large enterprises greater supply chain flexibility and cost savings. For the first time, Skorpios provides a semiconductor package with all optics, electronics and fiber coupling solutions, applicable to edge-pluggable, embedded, backplane or other proprietary applications that suits the customer's cloud architecture.

"We project a quickly ramping demand for cost-effective, single-mode 100GbE links in the largest data centers," said Dale Murray, principal analyst for LightCounting Market Research. "Complete System-on-Chip packaging of a CWDM optical engine with fiber coupling should offer packaging flexibility and the potential to meet demanding cost expectations."

"Silicon photonics needs to enable more than simply moving some optical discrete functions from high-cost, low yielding III-V processes to CMOS," said Samir Desai, vice president of Sales and Business Development at Skorpios. "With our S-xoC family of fully integrated optoelectronics solutions, customers can, for the first time, realize the true value of the fabless semiconductor business model in the optical communications market. The 100G data center optics market is the ideal first application of Skorpios' S-xoC. We are excited to offer a roadmap that leads to true monolithic integration of terabit optoelectronics."
