Hyper Photonix announces general availability of 800G DR8 optical transceivers

Optical transceiver designer and manufacturer Hyper Photonix Ltd of Bellevue, WA, USA has announced general availability (GA) of its 800G DR8 products, which leverages the power of its patented Hyper Silicon silicon photonics platform, demonstrating the scalability of its 400G DR4 product line.

Hyper Photonix 800G optics are available in QSFP-DD112 and OSFP-112 form factors and 500m to 10km reach, and they are compatible with NVIDIA/Infiniband and Ethernet ecosystems. With completion of comprehensive qualification testing, the 800G products are now in mass production at the company’s high-volume automated manufacturing facility. Hyper Photonix says that the milestone underscores its commitment to delivering reliable, high-performance, cost-optimized, next-generation transceivers worldwide and bridging the gap in global optical interconnect supply and surging AI/ML-driven demand.

“Operators of large AI clusters started to transition from using multi-mode fiber transceivers to longer-reach single-mode fiber modules, including DR8,” comments Dr Vladimir Kozlov, CEO & chief analyst at LightCounting. “Demand for single-mode 800G transceivers is likely to exceed our forecast in 2024 and triple in 2025. Large customers are concerned about the limited manufacturing capacity of their current suppliers and starting to qualify new vendors. It is great timing for the Hyper Photonix announcement,” he adds.

“Built on the Hyper Silicon platform, these transceivers offer performance, reliability and capacity tailored to the demands of hyperscale data centers,” says Hyper Photonix’s CEO Xavier Clairardin. “The cost- and power-optimized design makes the QSFP-DD112 and OSFP-112 transceivers ideal for Ethernet and Infiniband AI/ML applications.”

Looking ahead, Hyper Photonix is expanding its portfolio of parallel single-mode optics further. The firm will announce additional 800G and 1.6T products later this year, including the highly anticipated linear pluggable optic (LPO) and active optical cable (AOC) configurations, further solidifying its position as an industry leader in high-speed optical interconnects.
