Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) is likely to become a major application driver of Integrated Photonics. For many decades, the demand for wireless connectivity has grown faster than Moore’s law, but radio technology may neither deliver adequate bit rates nor the extremely dense reuse needed to support the growing demand for HR video, accelerated by Augmented and Virtual Reality or the Internet of Things.

Moore’s Law, the 1965 observation by Fairchild and Intel co-founder Gordon Moore that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles about every two years, is set for repeal by 2021.
The Semiconductor Industry Association’s (SIA) latest International Technology Roadmap (PDF) suggests that it will be all-change as early as 2021. Continue reading “Semiconductors reaching practical limits, says SIA”
Based on the roadmap of JePPIX: Successful introduction of a novel technology requires a close interaction between the users and the providers of that novel technology. Continue reading “The ecosystem for Photonic ICs”
Data centers are morphing into computing singularities, albeit large ones. Silicon photonics will hasten that process. The reason why begins with Moore’s Law. Continue reading “Silicon photonics will revolutionize data centers in 2015”
As Moore’s Law begins to break down, chip makers risk making billion-dollar bets on next-generation technology with consequences for the entire electronics value chain. Continue reading “Is the semiconductor industry able to reduce prices on its next generation of microchips?”
