Optica Photonic-Enabled Cloud Computing (PECC) Industry Summit at Synopsys

We look forward to seeing you at the Optica Photonic-Enabled Cloud Computing Industry Summit. The Summit begins with an evening reception and dinner at a local restaurant, followed by two days of invited talks, keynotes, panel sessions, and networking events. 

Join the conversation with executives and leaders of data communication and cloud computing to learn the latest opportunities and challenges that the industry faces with the advent and adoption of GenAI, and how photonics is enabling this technology. In particular engage with hyperscalers and system integrators as a photonic-enabled AI fabric is being deployed, and connect with solutions providers across the datacom value chain, from PIC foundries and packaging solution providers to material and component supplier and module integrators.

Discussion topics include: the future with AI, chips, chiplets, and transceivers, what is the role of foundries, what do hyperscalers really want, how materials can mix things up and how photonics can change the industry.

All scheduled events, except reception and welcome dinner, are at Synopsys at 675 Almanor Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085.
