Intel Develops Fastest Optical Chip Using Silicon

Intel has talked about bandwidth requirement in massive multi-core processors and how bandwidth can be the biggest bottleneck in development of processor with hundreds of cores. Intel has been working on various solutions for the above problem and one of them was silicon photonics. But, till now, silicon photonics with complementary metal-oxide semiconductors (CMOS) have suffered from performance shortcomings. Read More
