A step added to the long road of opti-tronics?
Or how would you call that?
Instead of electrical current, use light.
In theory that would make faster computers and no FCC regulations needed... that would reduce the cost of electronics at the long term.
Ooops, sorry, optronics ;-)
I presume they would need to be grown at the place where they are needed...random placement of some lasers on top of the chip will probably not work;-)...some sort of seed for epitaxial growth???...dr Kris
Blog Doing Math in FPGAs Tom Burke 8 comments For a recent project, I explored doing "real" (that is, non-integer) math on a Spartan 3 FPGA. FPGAs, by their nature, do integer math. That is, there's no floating-point ...
