Skorpios Demonstrates Differentiated 100G-CWDM Silicon Photonics Solutions at OFC 2015

Senior Executive to Participate in Symposium on The Future of Integrated Optics

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Skorpios Technologies, Inc., a fabless integrated silicon photonics system on a chip company, today announced its participation at OFC 2015, taking place this week at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles. Skorpios will demonstrate its 100G-CWDM solutions in industry-standard form factors and proprietary ultra-high density (System on a Chip) form factors, at its private suite. Skorpios' demonstration and roadmap address requirements of the data center market to bring high-density, low-cost, low-power, single-mode fiber duplex optical solutions to 100G networking today, with a platform to easily scale to 400G.

Highlighting its proprietary Skorpios' Template Assisted Bonding (STAB) process, Alfredo Viglienzoni, senior vice president of Sales, Marketing and Business Development at Skorpios, will discuss the state of silicon photonics market opportunities and participate in the OFC Symposium entitled "Beyond The Gold Box: The Future of Integrated Optics."

"I look forward to representing Skorpios at the OFC's Symposium and discussing the future of integrated optics," said Viglienzoni. "No other platform is capable of achieving the high level of integration and scalability that Skorpios STAB enables. The application spaces are limitless in scaling data rate, lambdas and link distance. Moreover, these benefits can be achieved at mature CMOS industry cost."

Skorpios will deliver its first pluggable transceiver, the QSFP28-CWDM, 100G that support the CWDM4 MSA and CLR4 Alliance industry standard specifications. Skorpios also will begin deliveries of their Tunable Laser for Coherent transmission, which can be packaged in a micro ITLA form factor or other custom form factors. With these products, Skorpios enables the most highly integrated, lowest power dissipation and highest-density form factors available in the market. With the capabilities enabled by the STAB platform, Skorpios is able to offer two such diverse products simultaneously.

Skorpios invites customers to meet at OFC 2015 in Los Angeles. To set up a meeting, email Samir Desai at or Alfredo Viglienzoni at
