Optalysys was formed to solve the fundamental limitations facing traditional computing. This is at a time when the unquenchable thirst for faster processing ever expanding volumes of data comes face to face with the impending demise of Moore's Law.
We are developing optical high performance processors and solutions that operate at levels well in excess of traditional computing architectures at a fraction of the cost and energy consumption.
Optalysys technology uses light, rather than electricity, to perform processor intensive mathematical functions in parallel at incredibly high-speeds and resolutions. The first co-processor product launches Q1/2018, aimed at the genomics market. Read about our much anticipated first product.
