Work­shop at the SP­PCom in Busan

At the SPPCom in Busan, the workshop "Ultrafast Signal Processing by Combined Photonic-Electronic Integrated Systems: Where, why and when?" was conducted by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirt.Ing. Stephan Pachnicke (CAU Kiel) and Dr.-Ing. Patrick Runge (Fraunhofer HHI). The workshop discussed how combined photonic-electronic signal processing and photonic-electronic integration technologies can pave the way to completely new system concepts. In particular, this was considered in terms of high bandwidth operation and energy efficient signal processing. The presenters exemplified the challenges and limitations of future signal processing circuits.
