There’s a lot of industry excitement around advances in optical interconnects – and also a lack of clarity. Terms are often mixed and dissimilar technologies lumped into the same bucket. This is nowhere more prevalent than with in-package optical I/O (OIO) and co-packaged optics modules (CPO).
Silicon Photonics Enables Optical I/O Interconnects, Delivering Cost, Power, and Latency Benefits
Optical interconnect is used to generate, process, and manipulate light for faster data transmission, both between and within microelectronic chips. In a typical electro-optical transceiver, electronic data is converted into an optical signal and vice versa.
Five Technology Trends to Watch in 2023
Advancements in AI applications led the 2022 headlines given the trends in Natural Language Processing (NLP), Deep Learning Recommender Models (DLRMs) and the latest advancements with ChatGPT. We look forward to what AI will bring in 2023. In all these use cases, data management is key to ensuring the AI models continue to advance.
