Luxtera, a leading developer and supplier of silicon CMOS photonics, has announced that it has shipped its one-millionth 10 Gbit channel device.

The company commented, “This important milestone underlines the growing demand for silicon photonics in today’s mission critical data centers and computer clusters as well as reinforcing Luxtera’s ability to meet high performance computing (HPC) needs on a larger scale.” The company added that its achievement further signifies the emergence of silicon photonics as the next generation interconnect solution - with a cumulative total of 10 Petabits of transceiver bandwidth shipped.

“The announcement is an important milestone for the optical industry, Silicon CMOS Photonics can no longer be characterized as the technology of the future, it appears it is ready to be front and center as the technology of today,” commented Brad Smith, VP and industry analyst at LightCounting.com, a firm that specializes in high-speed interconnect market research.

Luxtera is a leading IP provider and supplier of silicon CMOS photonics and claims to be the only provider of silicon photonics devices shipping in “significant commercial volume”. This technology continues to be a driving force that supports growing bandwidth demands of equipment in HPC, next-generation datacenters and cloud computing.
