– “Silicon Photonics, current status and future perspectives” on April 11 at 3:15PM
Eric Mounier, Senior Analyst | MEMS Devices & Technologies
Abstract: With Big Data getting bigger by the second, transporting this level of data with existing technologies will soon reach its limit in terms of power consumption, density, and weight. It is now sure that photons will continue replacing electrons throughout networks, including in the Data Centre, the rack, and very soon on the board. The question is: how to achieve this at low cost? The answer is quite simple: market volume in million units will allow scale factor that will drive the cost down. This is the quite simple equation that Silicon Photonics, fundamentally a semiconductor-based process, must solve. Si photonics has been under development for years, but there are still only a few products on the market… More here
