Abstract

Abstract (40-Word Limit): We report on the first silicon photonic modulator-based optically-connected memory system. An FPGA-based processor generates a 4x2.5-Gb/s WDM memory link via an array of silicon microring modulators, achieving error-free (BERs<10<sup>-12</sup>) performance using several standard line coding schemes.
