16 May 11. APIC Corporation, a Los Angeles, CA-based pioneer of photonics technology integrated with electronics, and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany today announced that they have formed a $10 million partnership for joint development and commercialization of innovative “green” technology to enable faster computer chips that use significantly less power. The collaboration, which integrates APIC’s expertise in photonics systems and devices with CNSE’s world-class nanoelectronics resources, will result in creation of at least 20 high-tech jobs over the next 18 months, the majority at CNSE’s Albany NanoTech Complex. The APIC-CNSE partnership targets development and delivery of a new generation of modules and systems that utilize photonic integrated circuits (PIC), which combine optical communications with silicon-based CMOS technologies. As ongoing scaling continues to shrink the bandwidth of metal wiring used to connect CMOS circuits, severely limiting speed and functionality for advanced processors and multi-core systems, optical communication – which uses light to transmit information – is seen as a serious contender to break this communications bottleneck.
