Optical memory systems for 3-D computing architectures

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Three-dimensional techniques are emerging to package many electronic chips in a single 3D assembly that can provide single chip like performance. Due to the inherent parallelism used in these packages, large I/O bandwidths are possible. A direct application of these techniques is the 3D DRAM stacks. 3D packaging allows for larger capacity memories to be built without incurring a significant increase in access times. Moreover, due to their dimensional compatibility, 3D memories and 3D packaged electronic processing systems may be naturally well suited to each other's needs. This paper explores the possibilities and attempts to outline means by which these devices can be interfaced advantageously.
