Optical FPGA: the Next Generation FPGA

Instead of using copper wires, Optical FPGA rely on fiber optics. What’s the main advantage? There’s a tremendous increase in link distance, performance and bandwidth capability, enabling high-speed communication between products. Back in 2012, Altera Inc. partnered with Avago Technologies to introduce the Optical FPGA. Instead of copper wires, the chip-level circuitry included a laser […]
