Optalysys: Disruptive Optical Processing Technology for HPC

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In this video from the Disruptive Technologies Session at the 2015 HPC User Forum, Nick New from Optalysys describes the company’s optical processing technology.

Optalysys technology uses light, rather than electricity, to perform processor intensive mathematical functions (such as Fourier Transforms) in parallel at incredibly high-speeds and resolutions. It has the potential to provide multi-exascale levels of processing, powered from a standard mains supply. The mission is to deliver a solution that requires several orders of magnitude less power than traditional High Performance Computing architectures.”
