Photonics company Ranovus has announced the Odin platform, scaling its 100Gbps per lambda silicon photonics engine from 800 Gbps to 3.2 Tbps in a single chip.

Delivered as a module or co-packaged with optics, the Odin platform integrates the company’s 100Gbps silicon photonics based on Micro Ring Resonator modulators and photodetectors, 100Gbps driver, 100Gbps TIA and control IC.

The Odin platform delivers 50% reduction in power consumption/Gbps and a 75% cost/Gbps reduction over today’s solutions, claims the company’s CEO Hamid Arabzadeh. The silicon photonics engine supports ML/AI applications with a 0.4ns low latency and a transmission distance of 10m to 2km in CWDM and DWDM applications. It offers 8 optical channels of 100Gbps/64Gbps/50Gbps PAM4 or 50Gbps/32Gbps/25Gbps NRZ. Suitable for integration in QSFP-DD and OSFP module form factors, the new engine supports 25.6Tbps and 51.2Tbps Ethernet Switch configurations.
