Engineers Closing the Gap Between High-Speed Data Transmission and Processing

Electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego have achieved world-record speeds for real-time signal processing in an effort to meet ambitious goals set by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop the first Terabit-scale technology for optical processing. The technology could have widespread ramifications for networking, computing, defense and other industries.

UC San Diego electrical and computer engineering professor Stojan Radic and his team have demonstrated the first real-time sampling of a 320 Gigabits per second (Gb/s) channel, setting multiple records in the process. The results were outlined in papers delivered at the IEEE LEOS Society for Photonics Winter Topical Meeting Jan. 12-14 in Innsbruck, Austria, at the Photonics West Conference this week in San Jose, Calif., and in recent submissions to IEEE Photonics Technology Letters and the IEEE Journal of Lightwave Technology.

The story is too old to be commented.

very good for multi cores and projects like protein folding.

Indeed. And no doubt this will be beneficial to us gamers.

This will make consoles useless, only services will matter and your internet connection
