Kotura Inks Fab Deal
 
Silicon photonics manufacturer Kotura Inc. has partnered with a large Japanese semiconductor foundry, Mindspeed Technologies Inc., and BinOptics Corp. of Ithaca, N.Y., to commercialize a 100G optical engine for next-generation data centers and high-performance computing.

The announcement was made Tuesday at OFC/NFOEC 2013.

Kotura will leverage the foundry partner’s capabilities for high-volume production of the optical engine — a low-power, integrated 100-Gb/s chip solution for use in a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) quad small form-factor pluggable (QSFP) module.

Our silicon photonics solutions resolve price, performance and reliability issues not currently being addressed by existing approaches," said Jean-Louis Malinge, Kotura president and CEO. "In a world full of applications with pressing bandwidth and performance needs, there is tremendous opportunity for silicon photonics to heed the call, starting with the data center market as our primary target. This foundry partnership offers Kotura the fastest and most reliable path to mass production and the ability to scale to meet this demand."

Kotura’s partnership with Mindspeed Technologies will enable it to meet the low power requirements of the 100-Gb/s WDM QSFP package; its collaboration with BinOptics will allow it to develop laser arrays, which can be passively flip-chip bonded onto Kotura’s optical engine to produce a high-volume, low-cost electronics-style assembly.
