Low-cost, high-speed optical transceivers to enhance digital connectivity
The EU-funded MASSTART project targets high-speed data rates at reduced costs per data volume across Europe. Its new holistic transformation path enables the highest possible data rates with enhanced techniques, lower power consumption, and lower manufacturing costs per component. The targeted manufacturing costs are less than EUR 1 per Gb/s. MASSTART uses silicon, the same material that empowered the global electronics industry, to build low cost chips that generate and receive optical signals. MASSTART is developing automated assembly and testing equipment, upgrading current practice of manual assembly which dominates module cost. MASSTART will turn Europe into a producer of next-generation technologies, improve cross-fertilisation between photonics and other technology areas and strengthen Europe’s leading position in the global photonics industry.
