Researchers attach silicon photonic chips directly onto a processor package

The computing and telecommunications industries have ambitious plans for the future: Systems that will store information in the cloud, analyze enormous amounts of data, and think more like a brain than a standard computer. Such systems are already being developed, and scientists at IBM Research have now demonstrated what may be an important step toward commercializing this next generation of computing technology. They established a method to integrate silicon photonic chips with the processor in the same package, avoiding the need for transceiver assemblies.

The story is too old to be commented.

The possibilities of photonics computing is a whole other stratosphere. I'm really excited to see the applications of this in action.
