    Photonic Accelerator Could Increase Computation Speed and Efficiency

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A new photonic integrated circuit device, developed by researchers in Japan, can be placed at the front end of a digital computer and optimized to perform specific functions with less power consumption than is needed for fully electronic devices. This photonic accelerator, called PAXEL, is a special class of processor that can process images or time-serial data either in an analog or digital fashion on a real-time basis. PAXEL is distinct from electronic accelerators in that the target information is optically sensed and processed.

    Semiconductor transistors are the basis for most integrated electronic circuits, but they are limited by Moore’s law, which says the number of microprocessor chips on a single electronic circuit will…
