The traditional architectural and material assumptions with regard to how integrated circuits are fabricated have been challenged in recent years and the semiconductor industry is looking for new solutions. Power and thermal issues add to this apparent crisis in the semiconductor industry.

One of the most important problems is the so-called interconnect bottleneck, that is the tendency for data traffic jams to appear both on-chip and chip-to-chip. The interconnect bottleneck is emerging well before Moore's Law completely runs out of steam, but reappears in differing forms in some of the new architectures designed to make chip scaling easier.

The obvious solution is to deploy fiber optics; which is usually the way to go whenever and wherever there is a bandwidth problem. But fiber optic solutions to on-chip and chip-to-chip interconnection is something that will be hard to develop for commercial chip products. Producing photonic devices that are small enough and inexpensive enough to be used at the chip level is an immensely difficult requirement.

In this report, we analyze the latest developments in optical interconnection at the chip level and the progress in this area that is being made by important research teams throughout the world. Both R&D and commercial development are discussed.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
