Laser in CMOS!...this will be huge if it works as advertised!!...we would love to have this technology presented at CMOS Emerging Technologies symposium in Whistler this JUly (www.cmosetr.com), if anyone at Skorpios is interested pls contact me, kris.iniewski@gmail.com

Strictly, CMOS should not imply Silicon. You can have III-V CMOS.

How about the reliability ? Luxtera bonds laser chip on CMOS wafer, what's the difference ? Only laser is not enough, has Skorpios developed receiver, modulator...with high perfomance ? Infinera has realized WDM on chip on III-V platform, will Skorpios's solution be cheaper and better ?

If you put four 25Gbps lasers on a chip, are you allowed to call this a 100Gbps laser? There would appear to be a wide gap between the press release title and what may have been actually demonstrated. Some have other names for such a gap, 'factor of 4 or 10' comes to mind.

I guess it's another example of hybrid "Si" laser with III-V and Si wafer bonding technology pioneered by UCSB/intel and some European teams. In another report, they claim they still have some problems with waveguide to laser coupling which is critical for any practical uses. I guess they can't use grating coupler as Luxteta has protected this little trick with a bunch of patents. Anyway, we will see how it looks like in the upcoming OFC. @laser_jock, it refers to 100G because of the IEEE 100GbE LR4 (4x25G) standard.

Oops. I mean waveguide to fiber (not laser) coupling.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
