It's moot even then since trend-setting iPad doesn't even have USB.

I have heard that the devices with USB 3.0 are going to draw almost double the power on the USB port compared to the devices with USB 2.0? Are you aware about the power specs for USB 3.0?

It may all be moot if either USB 3.0 or Light Peak make the processor the bottleneck.

Intel is showing lots of power to continue to dominant. They have been moving strategically and developing products which make sense. It is good to see them drive the market . Light Peak with become a game changer.

I have an Excimer laser in my lab that can be controlled through an optical RS232 interface. It worked majestically and I wonder where has the industry been during the last 20 years.

What does Intel want? Lightpeak is anyday better (more $$ in profits) for them, so why would they push USB 3.0? However, if Intel doesn't support USB 3.0, it will be a golden opportunity for AMD (& others perhaps) to gain market share in desktop & laptop systems. If Intel pushes Lightpeak more, they will have a strategy to make it popular. Perhaps, incubate/support Lightpeak-to-USB converter makers while trying to convince the device makers to shift to Lightpeak sooner.

I think the comparison here in the article is not done in the proper way as USB 3.0 is looked as high speed solution for desktops and portable devices. Where as LightPeak will move towards network devices finding it application. This will surely reduce the cost of optical interconnects compared to present scenario.

I would expect Intel will make Light Peak royalty free if it owns the IP. It just wants to enable people to buy fast and expensive CPUs--but if someone knows the facts, please chime in!

Optics is thermally sensitive as well. You can get wavelength shifts, etc. I believe the large VCSELs used also consume the same order of magnitude power as a low-power Atom.

Does anybody have any specs on the required fiber to be used with Intels Light Peak? I can see that as being an issue with uptake if high coherency fiber is required rather than the less expensive fiber. I also agree with the licensing. If Intel makes it available as an open license then it may pick up for remote disk arrays.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
