Ultra-High Speed Optical Communication

Cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, Social Applications, and on-line Video continue to fuel the insatiable need for always more bandwidth, driving further the specifications for higher-speed optical transceivers inside and between the datacenters with ever-challenging requirements for higher density, and lower power consumption. 


Mobile service providers moving to 5G, need to increase the speed of their access network, and reduce the latency of their front haul.   


Our fully integrated Photonic ICs address the requirements for high-volume, high-data rate, and small form factor needed for pluggable modules or Co-Packaged Optics for : 

  • Data Centers

  • Cloud-based High Performance Computing (HPC)

Optical Comms

Augmented Silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC) solutions for Data Centers and Cloud-based HPC

Scintil's PICs are designed to interface with commercially available DSP, modulator drivers and TIA. They come with a reference design implementation of the control electronics and the fibre array attachment.

  • PIC solutions for 800G & 1.6T Optical Transceivers

PICs integrate up to x8 100Gbps or 200Gbps transmission channels as well as a the CWDM4 laser array and multiplexers.

  • PIC solutions for Multi-Port External Comb Laser Source

PICs integrate an 8- or 16-wavelength DFB laser array with 200GHz or 100GHz spacing, multiplexed on-chip to multiple output ports, compliant with CW-WDM MSA.


It features easy locking capabilities, providing system makers with unmatched characteristics for control and performance

3D Sensing

3D or depth-sensing is instrumental for Artificial Intelligence-based applications to gain a better understanding of their surroundings, and deliver better experience and service to the users.

The most important component in this application is the LiDAR,  and there is a wide range of technologies to support the multiple use cases of the automotive ADAS, or autonomous vehicles for the logistics industry.


FMCW LiDAR allows for simultaneous ranging and speed detection, whereas the coherent ranging is insensitive to weather conditions or other LiDAR system interferences. A transition to 1550nm wavelength will also solve the eye safety regulatory concerns. 


Leveraging tunable laser integration and coherent receiver technology from optical communication development, we are working at offering a fully integrated FMCW LiDAR engine.


Quantum Photonics

Using our technology that combines Si and III-V/InP or GaAs materials, key components required for quantum key distribution and quantum random number generators could be monolithically integrated, reducing dramatically the cost, and removing barriers for wider adoption.


Our solution has the potential to deliver the performances needed for implementing all optical components such as a narrow linewidth laser source, a coherent receiver, and a photon detector on a Fully Integrated Photonic Circuit.
