New Chip Transmits Entire Internet’s Traffic In Less Than A Second

Hard drives everywhere cried out in pain as scientists announced a breakthrough in network speed. The gigaboffins over at the Technical University of Denmark (which is, technically, a university in Denmark) have used a new kind of ‘photonic chip’ to transmit data at a whopping 1.84 petabits per second, a record for a single chip, and nearly double the bandwidth of the entire internet. All this through just a tiny fiber optic cable.

Unlike other fiber optic transmission methods, this new chip splits the datastream into multiple colors, 37 to be exact, which themselves are then split again into 223 different frequencies of light. By carefully selecting the frequencies, the scientists were able to broadcast multiple chunks of data in parallel, achieving ludicrous speeds. The speed is so great that not even Hunter Biden’s laptop itself can handle the amount of data this chip can transmit. (RT)

Our team’s world class expertise in vertically integrated photonic product design (device-module-system) and production has helped many customers prove feasibility, develop, and deploy new products for a variety of applications. For this, we rely on our photonic integration technology in InP, GaAs and Si. Let us help you be successful by providing a complete design to manufacturing solution for your market needs, utilizing some of our world record performance building blocks, like our high-power (tunable) lasers or high power photodetectors. Besides our monolithic integration and co-packaged based solutions, we have recently introduced a new, scalable and manufacturable, state-of-the-art hybrid integration technology – photonic wirebonding. This hybrid integration approach allows for producing photonic integrated circuits using best-in-class individual functional blocks, which are interconnected using low-loss, optimized waveguides.

Focus on what you know best, and leave the photonics piece to us. Our standard flow of product development and our capabilities are shown on this page.
