Realizing speeds in information processing
that never existed before
This technology changes electricity in the circuit into light,
which speeds up information processing enormously to open up amazing new possibilities.
with light in
Technology that fuses optical functions and silicon LSI technology to enable large-capacity data transmission and low power consumption. Faster information processing and lower power consumption than conventional electronics circuits
Optics / electronics conversion chip
- Fingertip-sized optics/electronics conversion chip (optical I/O core) with multi-channel quantum dot QD laser
- * Images of silicon photonics are provided by Photonics Electronics Technology Research Association.
*This R&D was conducted as part of the “ultra-low power consumption optical electronics mounting technology development of technology” project commissioned by NEDO.
- Improved information processing
- Replacing the electronics in circuits with light revolutionizes information processing.
- Low power consumption
- Quantum dot lasers can process information with less power.
- System miniaturization
- The optics / electronics conversion chip mount in the quantum dot laser is only 5mm wide.
Benefits of quantum dot lasers
- Stable operation at
high temperatures and
optical feedback tolerance
- The superior high-temperature stability and optical feedback tolerance of quantum dot lasers make them ideal light sources for silicon photonics.
Laser oscillation up to 120℃
