+ - IBM Details 'World's Fastest' Optical Chipset

FreeCyprus (1080391) writes "IBM Details 'World's Fastest' Optical Chipset (By Barry Levine, sci-tech-today.com, March 26, 2007)

"In detailing the new optical chipset that can transmit data at 160 Gbps, IBM said it provides the highest record ever of transmitted information per unit of physical space. Measuring 3.25 by 5.25 mm, IBM's optical chipset contains both driver and receiver circuits, and was built using complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology.

IBM researchers announced Monday an optical chipset that could allow you to download a complete high-definition movie in one second, rather than the 30 minutes or more that today's fastest chips allow."
