LED-based interconnects for chip-to-chip communications

Avicena's LightBundle™ achieves 10x – 100x power and density improvements over any alternative for 1 cm – 10 meter reach.

Avicena's LightBundle™ achieves 10x – 100x power and density improvements over any alternative for 1 cm – 10 meter reach.

Value Proposition

THE CHALLENGE

High-performance compute and networking systems require increasingly distributed architectures but are limited by the shortcomings of conventional electrical and optical interconnects.

AVICENA’S SOLUTION

LightBundle™ interconnects provide <0.5pJ/bit with >10Tbps/mm² density for  1cm to 10m lengths, enabling vastly higher performance systems.

THE APPLICATIONS

HPC, AI/ML, Ethernet switches, disaggregated memory, composable disaggregated infrastructure, high bandwidth sensor interconnects.
