Photonic Accelerator Could Increase Computation Speed and Efficiency

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
HAMAMATSU, Japan, Nov. 19, 2019 — A new photonic integrated circuit device, developed by researchers in Japan, can be placed at the front end of a digital computer and optimized to perform specific functions with less power consumption than is needed for fully electronic devices. This photonic accelerator, called PAXEL, is a special class of processor that can process images or time-serial data either in an analog or digital fashion on a real-time basis. PAXEL is distinct from electronic accelerators in that the target information is optically sensed and processed. Semiconductor transistors are the basis for most...Read full article
