GenXComm Photonic Fabric 

Ushering in the next revolution in computing and connectivity


GenXComm is developing light-enabled technologies that create faster, smaller, lower powered components for interference free, limitless device connectivity and distributed computation. We are replacing conventional microelectronics with photonic processors to enable an intelligent compute fabric composed of high speed adaptive mobile networks and small form factor, high precision sensors.

Up to 30x improvement in Wi-Fi performance


100X throughput improvement for Broadband Cable and DSL



GenXComm’s microphotonics-based real time signal processing enables interference free high-bandwidth adaptive networks. With GenXComm technologies, mobile service operators, broadband providers and enterprise wireless systems can deliver 5G, 6G and Wi-Fi 6 networking today, with flexible, high throughput, low-latency, spectrum efficient technologies that provide ubiquitous connectivity. 

Our patented Interference cancellation technology (S-SIX) can enable true full duplex, simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) and increased spectrum efficiency for wired and wireless communications. S-SIX provides full-duplex wireless backhaul, self-backhaul small cells, and 4G / 5G fixed and mobile flexible network architectures.

GenXComm’s S-SIX technology combines hybrid analog and digital interference cancellation to be able to provide a wide-band, tunable true full duplex radio within a compact subsystem. Although other mechanisms may be able to handle antenna coupling and near-field interference, the ability to dynamically and accurately match near and far-field reflections within a small Size Weight and Power (SWaP) in a constantly changing environment is unique to GenXComm and is patented .

This proprietary cancellation technique is built using a very novel principle combining RF with optics. The traditional approach to signal filtering and processing has been to down convert the signal to the digital domain to process it and then to convert it back to analog. This is computationally intensive, increasing system size and resource utilization. Digital-only approaches also cannot support high bandwidths at higher operating frequencies reducing their effectiveness for next generation communication systems. S-SIX takes a completely different approach to signal processing; it up-converts the RF signal to the optical domain to filter and process. This allows S-SIX to process RF signals with a very wide bandwidth, with very high resolution of tenability.  This RF-photonic architecture allows S-SIX to eliminate interference in the receive chain.  Secondary cancellation is then performed using an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based digital processing technique to achieve total cancellation of up to 130dB.  This secondary processing is significantly less resource intensive than traditional digital-only cancellation approaches.

Low powered, high precision RADAR and LIDAR

GenXComm microphotonic technologies enable ultra-fast mesh networks and low power, high resolution sensors to create autonomous systems and IoT devices capable of sensing and reacting to the environment at light speed.

Microphotonics based receivers deliver wideband spectrum analysis and interference-free signal processing for advanced sensing and adaptive mesh networking systems to allow seamless integration of the internet of all things. 

The future of autonomous systems depends upon the proliferation of low power, low cost, high performance sensing systems. GenXComm’s Photonic Integrated Circuits create coherent RADAR and LIDAR systems that are highly precise and resource efficient. Additional applications include advanced RFID for automated inventory, new light weight medical diagnostic devices, and advanced military signal processing systems.

Mesh networking systems remove the need for high powered transmitters and large towers by allowing individual devices to communicate directly to nearby devices.  Each device acts as its own miniature “cell tower” relaying information between nearby devices and ultimately connecting back to high throughput networking infrastructure.  Mesh networking allows autonomous vehicles to send immediate information about road conditions, acceleration/deceleration, obstacles needed for collision avoidance. Today’s mesh networks are inefficient and congested due to large control overhead. GenXComm’s full duplex technology enables low latency mesh networking by drastically reducing control overhead and latency.
