First Commercial Optical Processing System Takes Center Stage

Optalysys Ltd. unveils the FT:X 2000, what it’s calling the world’s first optical co-processor system. As demand for artificial intelligence (AI) escalates and silicon-based processing faces the breakdown of Moore’s Law, the FT:X 2000 boasts optical processing technology that will allegedly enable new and higher levels of AI performance for high resolution image and video-based applications.




Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

The system can accelerate some of the most demanding processor-intensive tasks at a fraction of the energy consumption of silicon processors. It can be programmed through the API or Tensorflow interface to perform optical correlation and convolution functions.



The FT:X2000 is an entry-level system that operates at up to 2400 frames per second with a 2048x1536 resolution. There are a limited number of systems available for order through [email protected]. For more details, visit OPTALYSYS.
