EU project claims progress towards terabit links on chip.

EU project claims progress towards terabit links on chip.

"PICMOS was a great success," said Dries Van Thourhout from the Wadimos project. "We showed that optical interconnects could be manufactured and that they would work. But it is one thing to make and demonstrate something in the lab; you won't get chips like these into the mainstream unless you can manufacture them at the industrial scale. Wadimos is proving that multiplexing is possible and that the chips can be made in a standard cmos fab." The partners, including STMicroelectronics, CEA-LETI, the Lyon Institute of Nanotechnology, the University of Trento, Mapper Technology and imec, have produced a network of eight fully interconnected silicon blocks. The team has demonstrated successful multiplexing across these connections and the feasibility of optical filtering to direct and control the passage of photons through the silicon interconnects and their subsequent detecti...
