At the Optical Fiber Conference taking place from March 22-24 in Anaheim, Calif., Mellanox is announcing an “important milestone” on the road to High Data Rate (HDR) 200Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet networks. At the trade show, the company is demonstrating 50 Gb/s silicon photonics optical modulators and detectors, which will comprise key elements of 200 Gb/s and 400 Gb/s LinkX cables and transceivers.
Engineers at IBM have developed a fully integrated wavelength multiplexed silicon photonics chip, which the company says will soon enable manufacturing of 100 Gb/s optical transceivers. The advance promises to offer a more economical way to move the huge amounts of data required for cloud computing and big data applications. It’s a significant milestone for Read more…
Silicon photonics is in the spotlight again, being pitched by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Micron Technology Inc. as a potential Moore’s Law extender. The technology of silicon photonics refers to using light, instead of electrical wires, to enable silicon-based transistors to communicate on a single chip. Read more…
Technology will enable decoupling of compute and storage in server racks.
If chip progress stalls, blame the interconnect bottleneck.
Chip maker aims to revolutionize computing with integrated photonics devices.
Intel Corp. is claiming another advance in creating optical communications components from silicon, an effort designed to reduce the cost and increase the speed of transmitting computer data.
