Photonic Integration in Converged Data Centre Systems – Presented by Richard Pitwon, Seagate at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
System embedded photonic interconnect has been a strong area of focus in the European funding programmes for collaborative research and technological development over the past 15 years. This talk will provide an introduction to Seagate Systems collaborative research and development activities to address the viability of commercial deployment of photonic interconnect in large scale data centre environments including at the system, board and ultimately chip level. Seagate is developing an international cross-project initiative, which will allow advanced technologies from different international projects to be tested with respect to one another.
