Enosemi launches with focus on silicon photonics


Enosemi, a new fabless startup focused on design enablement and design IP for silicon photonics, has announced it is emerging from stealth mode. The company has a commercial agreement with Luminous Computing to license and sell the silicon photonics design IP originally developed at Luminous, a key technology for AI supercomputing applications. Enosemi is led by an executive team with expertise in silicon photonics, analogue mixed signal, lasers, control, packaging, and system hardware.

“We’re excited to leverage this amazing work that the Luminous team has created,” said Enosemi CEO, Matt Streshinsky. “Silicon photonics is maturing as an industry, and now is the time to bring design flows and methodologies that are common in the integrated electronics world to the integrated photonics world.”

“Enosemi will dramatically lower the barriers to entry for any company looking to enter the market, regardless of photonic design expertise,” said Enosemi CTO, Ari Novack.

“This is one of the most exceptional teams in the industry and we are confident in our ability to push forward the next revolution in silicon photonics design,” said Shahab Ardalan, VP of Engineering at Enosemi.

Matt Streshinsky and Ari Novack were on the founding team at silicon photonics startup Elenion Technologies, which brought silicon photonics products for data centre and telecommunications applications to market. Elenion was acquired by Nokia in 2020. Shahab Ardalan was an early employee at silicon photonics startup Ayar Labs and on the team at Gennum Corporation, which was eventually acquired by Semtech Corporation.

“As an AI hardware company, the benefits that silicon photonics can provide to the next generation of machine intelligence are abundantly clear, and this is definitely the team to do it,” said Marcus Gomez, CEO of Luminous. “Enosemi provides opportunities to scale products in ways that were previously impossible and we are delighted with this first commercial application of Luminous technology. Luminous has several other critical commercial products coming to market soon.”
