Microprocessor Integrates Silicon Photonics

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Made from silicon using conventional fabrication methods, a microprocessor that integrates multiple photonic components is said to be the first to communicate directly with other devices using light. The device consists of two processor cores with more than 70 million transistors and 850 photonic components on a 3 × 6-mm chip. It was fabricated in a foundry that mass-produces computer chips, indicating that their design could be scaled up for commercial production. The electronic-photonic processor chip communicates directly with other devices using light. This photo shows...Read full article
