Keysight to showcase technologies to accelerate AI at OFC 2024


The company will demonstrate several technologies, including, in collaboration with FormFactor, a complete measurement automation and probing solution for PICs

Keysight Technologies has announced that it will be showcasing design, simulation, and test solutions, including a measurement automation and probing solution for PICs, at OFC 2024.

The use of AI is growing rapidly and the race to develop and deploy high-speed, high-bandwidth optical interconnects is a top priority for datacentre and cloud service providers. Keysight says its market-leading solutions accelerate the adoption of AI through the validation of high-speed optical and electrical technologies.

Collaborating with FormFactor, Keysight says it will present a complete measurement automation and probing solution for PICs. The demo will show how to verify wafer/die PIC modulator and photodetector designs for optoelectronic S-parameters, S (lambda), and polarisation-dependent responsivity/insertion loss using a measurement algorithm to seamlessly control wavelength, biasing, and polarisation.

Other technologies the company will be showcasing include: low-power PCIe 7.0 optical interconnect technology; linear drive optical transceivers exhibit lower latency, power consumption, and cost than traditional re-timed transceivers; a 224G receiver test with interference tolerance as well as intersymbol interference (ISI) and bit error ratio (BER) measurements based on built-in counters of a SERDES chip; and signal analysis on 800ZR high-speed coherent pluggable optics from multiple vendors at both the physical and the protocol levels.

“As cloud providers bring the transformative power of AI to life, enhancing productivity across various industry verticals, the optical industry has once more taken centre stage accelerating the next generation of high bandwidth, low power and low latency interconnects necessary for AI infrastructure,” said Joachim Peerlings, vice president and general manager of Networks and Data Centers at Keysight Technologies. “Keysight is proud with the progress we are enabling in this arena, from physical layer to protocol, from electrical to optical, and from early R&D to production. We have our customers covered every step along the way.”
