IDF 2013: Justin Rattner Presents Intel® Silicon Photonics

IDF 2013 - Justin Rattner

In addition to the Intel® Silicon Photonics Technology (Intel® SPT), Rattner showed the new photonics cable and connector that Intel is developing with Corning. This new connector has fewer moving parts, is less susceptible to dust and costs less than other photonics connectors. Intel and Corning intend to make this new cable and connector an industry standard. Rattner said the connector can carry 1.6 terabits of information per second.
