Maximum Interview: 50Gb/s Silicon Photonics Within Reach

Alan Fackler

Check out this video of Gordon interviewing an Intel Lab Scientist about the company's upcoming silicon photonics technology which fuses silicon and photons to move date at a spectacular speed.  Not be confused with Intel's Lightpeak, Intel's silicon photonics is more intended as a way to move data at far higher speeds and further distances than Lightpeak, which will initially move data at 10Gb/s using optical cables and eventually scale to 100Gb/s.  Silicon Photonics is intended to initially hit 50Gb/s and scale to 1Tb/s and could be used for everything from a chip-to-chip interface to a communication link between servers.

Check out this video to hear some more stunning numbers, straight out of IDF!
