The International Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap: defining the destination and the path (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Lionel C. Kimerling

Paper Abstract

Electronic-photonic integration is the system-level solution to scaling bandwidth density at constant cost and energy. The end point is one interconnected, world-wide ‘data center’ with resources virtualized and provisioned as services. The IPSR-I consists of reports from 17 International Technology Working Groups that define the consensus timelines, applications and component technologies that enable the required scaling. Component performance will scale with integration. Parallelism is architectural scaling paradigm. Virtualization is functional scaling paradigm. This presentation will summarize the consensus requirements and solutions for information hardware evolution during the next two decades.
