  • Patent number: 10451903
    Abstract: An optical modulator apparatus may include a plurality of segment drivers, each segment driver having a unique offset voltage and driving but a portion or a segment of an electro-optical modulator. A modulating electrical signal may be applied to the segment drivers via a plurality of electrical delays. Parameters of the segment drivers may be selected so as to approximate a pre-defined transfer function, which may include a linear or a non-linear transfer function.

  • Publication number: 20190181958
    Abstract: A high data rate, high sensitivity, low power optical link using low-bandwidth components and low-bandwidth E/O drivers and receivers and method of building same. The method is based on the idea of making the optical part of the link look like a bandwidth limited lossy electrical channel, so that the powerful equalization methods used in the wireline electrical links can be applied to recover the transmitted data in a situation with low bandwidth and/or high loss and strong inter-symbol interference. Linear and non-linear optical channel components, E/O drivers and receivers can benefit from the apparatus and the methods of the invention.

  • Publication number: 20180259730
    Abstract: A photonic interface for an electronic circuit is disclosed. The photonic interface includes a photonic integrated circuit having a modulator and a photodetector, and an optical fiber or fibers for optical communication with another optical circuit. A modulator driver chip may be mounted directly on the photonic integrated circuit. The optical fibers may be placed in v-grooves of a fiber support, which may include at least one lithographically defined alignment feature for optical alignment to the silicon photonic circuit.

  • Publication number: 20160057517
    Abstract: An architecture for a fiber optic communication system that uses only two levels of switches, Tier 1 and Tier 3, is described. The architecture allows one to omit the conventional Top of Rack switch level and the conventional Tier 2 switch level while maintaining performance and throughput. The cost to construct and install the improved switch architecture is lower than the cost of the conventional architecture. There are also described a number of transceivers that are suitable for use in the architecture disclosed. The transceivers employ silicon PIC chips that include high contrast silicon waveguides ion the chip and that connect to various configurations of optical fibers. The transceivers provide enhanced switching capacity with fewer devices.
