+ - Intel's 50Gbits/sec Light Peak successor->

Submitted by Barence
Barence (1228440) writes "Intel has unveiled yet another high-speed optical interface – before its long-awaited Light Peak connector has even reached the market. The Light Peak optical interconnect can transfer data at 10Gbits/sec in both directions, and is touted as an all-in-one replacement for USB, DisplayPort and HDMI. The new interface uses an indium phosphide hybrid laser inside the controller chip – a process which Intel calls silicon photonics – rather than using a separate optical module, as with Light Peak. And by encoding data at 12.5Gbits/sec across four laser beams of differing wavelengths, the connector yields a total bandwidth of 50Gbits/sec, five times that offered by Light Peak. “This is not a technology that’s ten years away, but maybe three to five years," Intel fellow Mario Paniccia announced. "Light Peak, as we’ve stated, will launch next year.”"
