Towards the neW era of 1.6 Tb/s System-In-Package transceivers for datacenter appLIcations exploiting wafer-scale co-inteGration of InP membranes and InP-HBT elecTronics

Project description

Meeting tomorrow's data transmission needs sustainably

Consumers demand increasingly fast and reliable access to ever-growing volumes of data, and service providers are racing to meet the challenge. 5G, or fifth-generation, cellular services are already being rolled out, cloud-based data applications are becoming the standard and the Internet of things (IoT) is taking form. Data centres and data centre interconnects will prefer optoelectronics with the lowest latencies and power consumptions and the largest capacities. The EU-funded TWILIGHT project plans to give them what they want and need with optical transceivers capable of 1.6 trillion bits of data per second. Aside from massive capacity, the technology promises significant energy savings translating to reduced operating costs and lower environmental footprint.
