Sivers to demo next-gen laser arrays at ECOC 2023

News

DFB devices support 4 Terabit GPU to GPU communication for Generative AI applications

At ECOC 2023 in Glasgow from 1-5 October 2023, Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs will hold a joint live demonstration, showing the Sivers 8-wavelength DFB laser array integrated into the Ayar Labs SuperNova multi-wavelength optical source supporting 4 Terabit data communication.

The technology is designed for generative AI applications. As foundational AI models have become larger and more complex, they require more GPU processing and memory capacity. Integrating optical I/O within the GPU package to communicate with the rest of the GPU cluster, allows for efficient scaling of infrastructures to handle ever-growing AI demands. By using optical connections instead of electrical, power consumption can be lowered by up to 90 percent while allowing for 5-10x better communication within the AI cluster to increase utilisation of all GPUs.

“Electrical communication in generative AI clusters is getting to its limit, with regards to speed, heat and capacity. With Sivers laser array we will be able to allow for 5-10x better performance with up to 90 percent less power consumption to give generative AI clusters the performance needed. With Sivers lasers integrated in Ayar Labs SuperNova multi-wavelength optical source, we are working together to solve one of the main challenges for GPU to GPU communication to support the future revolution of generative AI applications”, said Anders Storm, Sivers Semiconductors Group CEO.

In addition to their presence at the exhibition, Sivers Photonics CTO, Andy McKee, will present, “Advances in InP Laser Arrays for Data Centre and Sensing Applications” on the Market Focus stage in the exhibition area on Tuesday 3 October at 11.20 am.

Sivers will also be taking part in the symposium, 'PICs for Quantum Applications', where Andy McKee will be a panelist and speaker, presenting 'High Performance Laser sources for Hybrid PIC Quantum Applications'. The symposium takes place on Tuesday 3 October from 3.30 – 5.00 pm, during the ECOC conference.

“We are excited to have this prestigious conference take place in Glasgow, offering us an incredible platform to showcase Sivers’ expertise on our doorstep. We have an exciting week planned, continuing our long-standing partnership with Ayar labs, with the next generation of our advanced arrays demonstration taking place on our booth, as well as showcasing our recent work on our advance arrays with a talk at on Market Focus stage,” said Sivers Photonics Interim MD and CTO, Andy McKee.
