|Keynote Title: CMOS Photonics - Bringing Moore's Law to Optical Interconnect
Co-Founder, President & CEO, Luxtera
The acceleration of video as a key network application, combined with the scaling on-chip interconnect needs of multi-core processors, is driving the need for silicon-compatible high bandwidth low latency optical interconnect . CMOS Photonics is a technology that seamlessly merges optics and electronics within production silicon chips, enabling a completely new generation of optical interconnect. This talk will overview the technology, key application areas, and timing of its market rollout.
