Luxtera has implemented complete photonic transceiver technology in the Hip7 0.13 mum SOI CMOS process at Freescale Semiconductor, enabling optical communications directly to and from a CMOS die. With the exception of the co-packaged laser, all optical functions are implemented in using CMOS processing. The devices implemented include 10 Gb/s modulators, germanium photodetectors, optical WDM filters, switches, attenuators and fiber coupling holographic lenses. To date, up to 40 Gbps transmission has been demonstrated down a single fiber using four optical wavelengths, each modulated at 10 Gbps.
