NEBULA (Neuro-augmented 112Gbaud CMOS plasmonic transceiver platform for Intra- and Inter-DCI applications) is a 3-year collaborative project on the development of a neuro-augmented 112Gbaud CMOS plasmonic transceiver platform for Intra- and Inter- DCI applications that brings together twelve leading academic and research institutes and companies. NEBULA aims to provide the foundations for a common future-proof transceiver technology platform with ultra-high bandwidth capabilities offered by a CMOS compatible toolkit and tailored towards meeting performance, cost and energy metrics in both inter-DCI coherent and intra-DCI ASIC co-packaged optics. NEBULA will be investing in the established bandwidth- and energy saving credentials of plasmonic modulator solutions together with the functional digital processing portfolio of neuromorphic optical reservoir computing engines towards painting the landscape of the next-coming disruption in transceiver evolution, tailoring them in System-in-Package prototype assemblies that can intersect with the challenging framework of both inter- and intra-DCI segments. The project was launched in Januray 2020 and it is funded by the European Commission through HORIZON 2020 framework targeting the topic ICT-05-2019: Application driven Photonics components.

The NEBULA project is an initiative of the Photonics Public Private Partnership and has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 871658.
