Silicon Mountain to build high-speed imager for holographic memory

Silicon Mountain Design (Colorado Springs, CO) is leading the design of a high-speed charge-coupled-device (CCD) imager as part of a consortium effort to develo¥a holographic memory system under a $22 million contract from the Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Such systems will use the three-dimensional aspects of a volume hologram to yield a memory having 100 times the speed and storage of current memories. The imager will read the three-dimensional optical data patte

Such systems will use the three-dimensional aspects of a volume hologram to yield a memory having 100 times the speed and storage of current memories. The imager will read the three-dimensional optical data patterns stored throughout the volume of the holographic memory, as opposed to information just stored on the surface. Rapid access to such large amounts of data requires high-speed CCD detector-array imaging.
