Optalysys History

Optical computing​

Optical computing has always been an attractive concept.

Near-instantaneous and low power, the uses of analog optical transform computing date back to the 1960s.

Bringing this kind of optical computing into the digital world has always been a challenge. Making a digitally programmable photonic transform system has been the goal of Optalysys since our founding in 2013.

The combination of silicon photonics, free-space optical processing and digital electronics that makes up our Etile processing core is a radically different yet extremely powerful approach that not only achieves this goal, it does so in a way suited to direct integration into the most challenging digital tasks.

Designed to tackle problems that cannot be addressed by electronic solutions, the current and future information processing capacity of optics is unmatched by any other technology.
