Get on the Optical Bus
For many years, engineers have sought to transfer signals from chip to chip with photons. Photons are more than fast, and because they don't carry a charge, can't interfere with each other. For designers, however, the optoelectronic strategy has been hindered by the problem of channeling photons correctly. IBM has done some interesting research in this technological area. DfR engineers can provide insight into the reliability of optical interconnect technology. For more information contact Nathan Blattau.
