ECOC 2023 Glasgow

October 2-4, 2023 — Glasgow, Scotland

Avicena will exhibit at ECOC 2023 in Glasgow Scotland October 2–4. Come visit us at Stand 522 to learn about LightBundle™, our high-bandwidth low-power microLED optical interconnect technology.

Avicena’s Alasdair Fikouras will also be speaking at the ECOC 2023 Market Focus program.

Day: Wednesday 4th October
Time: 10:40 – 10:55
Title: High-speed, low power microLEDs for optical communications
Speaker: Alasdair Fikouras, Senior Process Development Engineer

Abstract: Avicena is pioneering a revolution in data transmission with high-density, ultra-low power, short-reach optical interconnects. Unleashing the untapped potential of Gallium Nitride microLEDs, Avicena’s LightBundle™ provides a solution far superior to traditional, energy-intensive SerDes technology. Combining the microLEDs with silicon photodetectors and cost-efficient fibre bundles, Avicena overcomes the inherent limitations of interconnect density, offering unparalleled energy efficiency (<1pJ/bit), high-temperature operation (>150oC), and exceptional bandwidth density (>1Tbps/mm). By integrating existing IC and display manufacturing ecosystems, Avicena has the capability for a swift volume ramp-up, with affordable production, transforming the landscape of optical communications with a brighter future of faster, energy-efficient computing.
