First of all how did they verify the data rates? What equipment did they use? What BER did they get?

At 26 GHz you need at least a 78 GHz oscilloscope to see the third harmonic. I'd sure like to see an eye diagram.

Both IBM and Chalmers are pioneers in their respective fields. I would guess that the cable will be a Fibre cable and but i am not sure about the laser wavelength.

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.
