Researchers break “memory wall” conundrum, create fastest optical RAM cell

In the paper published in the journals Optical Letters, the team noted that the proposed RAM operates at 10 Gb/s for both Write and Read functionalities at 6.2 dB and 0.4 dB power, respectively. “Optical random access memories (RAMs) have been conceived as high-bandwidth alternatives of their electronic counterparts, raising expectations for ultra-fast operation that can resolve the ns-long electronic RAM access bottleneck,” the team wrote in the paper. Even better performance is expected by resorting to higher-capacity optical memories with multiple memory cells which use the different wavelengths of light.
