News & Highlights

On December 1st , 2015, a new H2020 European project named TERABOARD will start, including the Femtosecond Laser Micromachining group of IFN-CNR as one of the partners. The TERABOARD project targets the needs of intra and inter-board communications in data centers and will deliver prototypes enabling Tb/s of aggregate traffic, scalable to hundreds of Tb/s. Besides several research centers, the project involves major industrial partners as Ericsson, STMicroelectronics and Alcatel-Lucent. More info in the official press release.
