Boosting the density of computing, storage and networking is crucial for increasing the scale and decreasing the cost and power of data centers.

A new study is about the integrated racks-on-chip, networked, internally and externally, with optical circuit switching (to support large flows of data) and electronic packet switching (to support high-priority data flows). To prevent overheating, the transceivers need to be "low-power and highly efficient."
