Luxtera constructs advanced optical systems in standard semiconductor manufacturing processes and enables the next-generation of data centers, servers, and mobile infrastructure. Luxtera was acquired by Cisco in 2019.
Luxtera brings direct “fiber to the chip” connectivity to market. It is the first company to overcome the complex technical obstacles involved with integrating high-performance optics directly with silicon electronics on a mainstream CMOS chip. Luxtera's proprietary design and fabrication processes combine standard transistors for digital and analog electronic circuitry with passive nano-photonic optical structures. These CMOS Photonic transceivers offer better performance, increased reliability, and reduced power consumption at a fraction of the cost of traditional optical assemblies.
