Yes Dr. Kris, I agree. At least 20 years. I was very interested in this when in college 30 years ago. I hope this service will help academia to make progress in this area.

To @daleste: Sure, that would be interesting (having chips running on light) but I think we are at least 20 years away from that...anyone disagrees? ...dr Kris

So this includes III-V integration for the lasers?

This is good news. I look forward to the day we have chips that run on light instead of electricity. This will help us to get there much quicker.

Great exciting undertaking in the academic world, congrats to Michael Hochberg, UofW prof who I am sure is behind this initiive! I spoke today with Lukas Chrostowski, UBC prof, who is very excited to use this service. Students can know design photonics devices on silicon and have it fabricated the way they could do CMOS with Mosis and CMC Microsyetms for years. Michael and Lukas are organizing silicon nanophotonics course co-located with CMOS Emerging Technologies event in Whistler in June. Details to be posted at www.cmoset.com, dr Kris

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
