Sivers Photonics, subsidiary of Sivers Semiconductors, will be present at the upcoming European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) 2022, taking place at Basel Congress Centre from 18 – 22 September 2022. Booth 616. Sivers and Ayar Labs will hold a joint live demonstration showing the Sivers 8 wavelength distributed feedback (DFB) laser array integrated into the Ayar Labs SuperNova™ multi-wavelength optical source. CTO, Andrew McKee, will deliver a talk entitled “Advanced InP DFB Laser Sources for Silicon Photonics Hybrid Integration” on the Market Focus stage in the exhibition area, Monday 19th September at 2.05 pm.
The European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) is the continent’s largest event in the field and one of the most prestigious and traditional events on optical communications worldwide. Attracting scientists, engineers, and researchers from across the world, the event sees top universities and the world’s biggest and most influential companies present their astonishing breakthroughs. ECOC is the key meeting place to share knowledge, exchange ideas, foster innovation and start collaborations on a global level.
Sivers Photonics will showcase a joint live demonstration with Ayar Labs, showing the 8-wavelength distributed feedback (DFB) laser array from Sivers Photonics integrated into the Ayar Labs SuperNova™ multi-wavelength optical source. The demonstration will be located in booth #616 during the exhibition, running from 19 -21 September. Teams from Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs will be available throughout the event to take attendees through the live demonstration.
As founding and promoter members of the Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi- Source Agreement (CW-WDM MSA), the solutions from Sivers Photonics and Ayar Labs are both fully MSA compliant. Established in 2020, the CW-WDM MSA was formed to standardize WDM CW sources in O-band for emerging advanced integrated optics applications that are expected to move to 8, 16, and 32 wavelengths. Such higher wavelength counts are needed for emerging applications such as AI, high performance computing, and high-density optics, and enable a leap in performance, efficiency, cost, and bandwidth scaling compared with previous technology generations. Yole Dévelopment estimate the total value for the silicon photonic die market at $1.1B by 2026 (Source: Silicon Photonics, Market and Technology Report 2021).
In addition to their presence at the exhibition, Sivers Photonics CTO, Andy McKee, will present “Advanced InP DFB Laser Sources for Silicon Photonics Hybrid Integration” on the Market Focus stage in the exhibition area, Monday 19th September at 2.05 pm.
“We are excited to exhibit at this year’s ECOC, joining forces with Ayar Labs to showcase these groundbreaking solutions that are working together to enable the acceleration of Silicon Photonics for a wide variety of high-volume, low-cost applications.”, said Billy McLaughlin, Managing Director, Sivers Photonics.

CW-WDM MSA The CW-WDM MSA (Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi-Source Agreement) was formed to standardize WDM CW sources in O-band for emerging advanced integrated optics applications that are expected to move to 8, 16, and 32 wavelengths. Such higher wavelength counts are needed for emerging applications such as AI, HPC, and high-density optics, and enable a leap in performance, efficiency, cost, and bandwidth scaling compared with other technologies.
