Ayar Labs: PIPES Researchers Demonstrate Optical Interconnects to Improve Performance of Digital Microelectronics

Under DARPA’s Photonics in the Package for Extreme Scalability (PIPES) program, researchers from Intel and Ayar Labs have demonstrated early progress towards improving chip connectivity with photons – or light. Signaling over optical fibers enables the internet today and optical transceivers are ubiquitous in data centers, yet digital systems still rely upon the movement of electrons over metal wires to push data between integrated circuits (ICs) on a board. Increasingly, the limitations of electrical signaling from the chip package restrict overall bandwidth and signaling efficiency, throttling the performance of advanced systems. The PIPES program is exploring ways to expand Read More

DinoPlusAI: Latency Optimized AI Processors for the 5G/Edge Computing

As artificial intelligence (AI) permeates more industries with each passing day, there is a fast-growing demand for AI applications that have real-time responsiveness. Be it autonomous driving, industrial automation, facial-recognition for user authentication, or even customer service, quick response is crucial for enhanced user experience and business value. But the traditional CPUs or GPUs, which were not created with AI in mind, have many shortcomings in terms of their flexibility, cost, performance and power. The problems get worse with the onset of 5G, which, although brings higher networking capacity and shorter networking latency, puts greater pressure on computing throughput and Read More
