Processing optical signal in conventional IC technology offers plethora of applications for this technology. Many high speed application can resolved with it.
I also would like to know about power consumption. Will it offer advantage in conserving power?
I don't think it will in the short to medium term.
The fact that the strategic investors are Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks suggests this promising for long haul optical networking, the old Bookham Technology hunting ground.
Very impressive. This is to me a good investment. This is the main statement:
"Skorpios has demonstrated the viability of their technology. This funding will enable the commercialization and widespread deployment of their solution and has the potential to transform and broaden the reach of the communications industry,"
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.
