  1. Luxtera

    Traditional electrical connectivity is a remarkably robust technology which has provided many generations of bandwidth for applications ranging from Local Areas Network (LAN) to chip-to-chip interconnect. However, as bandwidth requirements scale up to and beyond 10 gigabits per second per channel, electrical links become shorter in reach while consuming increasing power. Eventually at certain speeds, electrical connectivity becomes impractical. Photonics, the engineering of optical circuits, has been enormously successful at long distances, creating the basis for the telecom revolution. However, the high costs associated with photonics have prevented its mass-market adoption in shorter reach applications such as LANs. These costs are attributable to a combination of factors, most particularly the fact that photonic devices have traditionally been built using relatively exotic materials such as Indium Phosphide and Gallium Arsenide that are outside the manufacturing experience of the mainstream, silicon-centric semiconductor industry. Luxtera was formed in 2001 to take advantage of the fact that with production CMOS line widths in the vicinity of 100nm the CMOS process itself can be used to create an array of complex photonic devices. Luxtera’s CMOS Photonics™ devices are fully integrated with CMOS electronics and are also orders of magnitude smaller (and hence in many cases faster) than traditional photonic elements. Because Luxtera leverages the extraordinary economies and infrastructures of CMOS in terms of software, processing, testing and packaging, it is the first company to build photonic solutions that is truly “fabless” in the sense that from the very beginning Luxtera’s chips have been fabricated in one of the world’s major fine-line width production CMOS processes. Luxtera’s product roadmap is focused on fulfilling the insatiable demand for bandwidth by directly integrating high speed fiber-optic network interfaces into standard CMOS chips. Luxtera’s products are designed scale up not just in their ability to move huge amounts of data from one chip to another (with virtually no regard to distance or bandwidth), but also to leverage Moore’s Law to build exponentially increasing amounts of data processing inside the network interface itself. Luxtera’s culture is focused on being the best in the world at everything we do. Caltech, one of the world’s eminent technical institutions, provided us with our initial base of intellectual property and serves as an ongoing RD partner. Our venture capital is provided by some of the world’s most successful venture capital partnerships (Sevin Rosen Funds New Enterprise Associates, and August Capital). Our team includes accomplished business and technical leaders from a cross-section of the world’s major technology companies and academic institutions including: AMD, Caltech, Intel, JDSU, Lucent, Motorola, MIT, Nortel, Stanford and Tellabs. Last but not least, we’re located in one of the greatest places to live in the world, the southern California coast north of San Diego.


  1. Luxtera

    Luxtera, Inc. is the world leader in Silicon CMOS Photonics. 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, bringing direct "fiber to the chip" connectivity to market. Headquartered in Carlsbad, California, Luxtera is a fabless semiconductor company that was founded in 2001 by a team of industry-renowned researchers and technology managers drawn from the communications and semiconductor industries. Luxtera has received funding from leading venture capitalists including August Capital, New Enterprise Associates, Sevin Rosen Funds and Lux Capital.
