Avicena

AvicenaTech Corp., founded in 2019, is developing revolutionary chiplet interconnect solutions based on novel optoelectronics.  Compared to state-of-the-art copper interconnects, Avicena’s platform supports far larger and more highly interconnected chiplet solutions, enabling a new generation of vastly higher performance systems. Avicena’s optical interconnects provide > 10x improvements in density, throughput, power, length, and latency compared to copper.  Founded by veterans of the optical communications industry, Avicena leverages mature high volume, low-cost technologies to rapidly deliver game-changing solutions for the electronics industry.

C.E.O.

Bardia Pezeshki generated, developed, and commercialized optoelectronic technology that resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue. High points include the tunable laser developed at Santur, selling over 500,000 units and >$0.5B in revenue, the first practical multiwavelength high bandwidth optical transceivers at 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s with MEMS-based integration technology at Kaiam, and most recently working a new way of making very dense connections for chip-to-chip communications.
