Optically Connected Memory (OCM)

Computing platforms are increasingly challenged by the need to process growing volumes of data arriving in real time and at very high rates. New memory technologies such as Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) and High-bandwidth Memory (HBM) provide a Tbps memory access. Optical interconnects based on Silicon Photonic platform enable new distance independent, and reconfigurable compute to memory architectures. Our work spans from the physical layer including transceivers and switches to application demonstration of memory bound applications.
