Lockheed Martin's venture capital arm has made a strategic investment in Ayar Labs to help the latter advance the commercialization of its monolithic in-package optical input/output platform.

Ayar Labs said Monday it wants its MIPO platform to address low-latency, low-power and high-bandwidth requirements in areas such as artificial intelligence, high-performance computing and digital beamforming radar applications.

“We are very excited to add Ayar Labs to our investment portfolio and look forward to working with them and gaining access to their in-package optical interconnect that could provide business and technical value across our business units,“ said Chris Moran, executive director and general manager of Lockheed Martin Ventures.

Ayar Labs demonstrated at the Supercomputing 2019 conference its TeraPHY chiplet and is now seeking to enter into co-design and sampling partnerships with semiconductor manufacturers, end users and OEM systems developers.
