HP and Intel are both making a lot of noise about turning to optical signals for future chip-to-chip and on-chip communications, but IBM appears to now have an edge as far as its claim to have all the basic components necessary, despite the fact that there is still a lot of hard engineering work ahead before commercialization. But are on-chip optics the future of on-chip communications for everybody? If so, can Intel, HP and others catch up on their own, or will they have license from IBM?
