RAMAT GAN, Israel, Oct. 11 -- Lenslet Labs Ltd. said it has successfully demonstrated what it describes as the world's first commercial optics-based digital signal-processing technology.
The company said the technology boosts the performance of digital signal processing to levels of tera operations per second, in a single component. The technology, based on a proprietary optical core, takes multiple electronic digital inputs, converts them into photons, performs the desired computation in the optical core then converts the optical output signals back into digital electronic form. Lenslet Labs has taken advantage of new optical components that have appeared on the market in recent years, as well as breakthrough proprietary signal conditioning algorithms.
"Lenslet has been successful in leveraging optical technologies originally developed for optical transmission and switching, and applying them to optical computing using a unique algorithmic approach,'' said Aviram Sariel, founder and CEO of Lenslet Labs. "The ultrahigh performance achieved by Lenslet's ODSPE will allow development of new cost-effective applications that require intensive signal processing computation power, previously considered unachievable."
