Skorpios and FormericaOE demonstrate PICs in 800G optical transceivers


Skorpios Technologies, a semiconductor company developing products based on Heterogeneous Photonic Integrated Circuits (HPICs), and Formerica Optoelectronics, an optical interconnect solution provider, have demonstrated Formerica’s 800G OSFP module based on Skorpios’ Tru-SiPh technology at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC).

Skorpios describes the SKRP 2035 HPIC as the world’s only single-chip device able to be driven with 100 Gb/s PAM4 electrical input signals and generate two IEEE 802.3 FR4-compliant optical PAM4 eyes. The company also says its HPIC does not require external lasers fibre-coupled to the device, or flip-chip devices on top of the silicon photonic chip, meaning that manufacturing complexity and overall product cost are reduced. Furthermore, Skorpios explains that the uncooled HPIC multiplexes the 8 PAM4 optical signals into two single-mode fibres, utilising the four standard CWDM wavelengths, and, likewise, the SKRP2025 HPIC incorporates a tuning-free demux to split the received wavelengths into 8 individual PAM4 signals.

Elaborating on the details of the 800G OSFP Dual Duplex LC 2xFR4 photonic integrated transceiver, Skorpios says it is a hot-pluggable, OSFP MSA, IEEE 802.3ck and IEEE 802.3cu-2021 compliant device that reaches 2km and consumes ≤18W. The company says it supports 2x400G breakout for higher port density critical to higher bandwidth in hyperscale data centres and cloud infrastructures.

“The FormericaOE team brings technical excellence, manufacturing prowess, and low-cost assembly processes enabled by the Tru-SiPh technology,” said David Huff, SVP of sales and marketing for Skorpios. “The 800G OSFP module addresses a growing need in high bandwidth optical connectivity in a cost-effective, scalable and reliable manner.”

"We are delighted to demonstrate our latest innovation, the 800G OSFP dual duplex LC 2xFR4 optical transceiver," said Peter Liu, VP of sales and marketing of Formerica Optoelectronics. "Skorpios’ Tru-SiPh technology has enabled us to deliver a high-performance, reliable, energy-efficient optical transceiver module that meets the needs of data centre and cloud computing applications."
