Photonic-Electronic Codesign for Post-Moore's Law Information Systems
As Moore’s Law reaching its end, information systems, from HPC and data center to automobile, aircraft, and cellphone, are integrating growing numbers of processors, accelerators, memories, and peripherals to meet the burgeoning requirements of new applications. Recent photonic advances promise great energy efficiency, ultra-high speed, low latency, and novel optical computing for post-Moore’s Law information systems. Photonics technologies can complement electronic technologies and piggyback onto developed silicon fabrication processes to provide viable and cost-effective solutions. Photonic-electronic codesign opens up new opportunities for systems, architectures, and PEDA (photonic-electronic design automation) tools to fully explore electronic-photonic hybrid designs for post-Moore’s Law information systems.
Jiang Xu is a full professor at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). He received his PhD from Princeton University and worked at Bell Labs, NEC Labs, and a startup company before joining HKUST. Jiang established Big Data System Lab, Xilinx-HKUST Joint Lab, and OPTICS Lab at HKUST. He currently serves as the Associate Editor for IEEE TCAD, TVLSI, and ACM TECS. He served on the steering committees, organizing committees, and technical program committees of many international conferences, including DAC, DATE, ICCAD, CASES, ICCD, CODES+ISSS, NOCS, HiPEAC, ASP-DAC, etc. Jiang was an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer and an ACM Distinguished Speaker. He authored and coauthored more than 130 book chapters and papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences. His research areas include machine learning system, photonic-electronic codesign, optical interconnection network, power delivery and management, MPSoC, low-power embedded system, hardware/software codesign.
