LyteLoop is the future of data storage - “Storage in Motion”

Since late 2015, we have been perfecting our proprietary, patent pending photonic method of data storage which puts data in a constant state of perpetual motion. Achieved using ultra-high bandwidth lasers, data now moves in an endless circulating loop, taking up less space and using less electricity.

LyteLoop’s revolutionary “storage in motion” technique will transform how data is stored while providing a myriad of unique and customizable advantages based on the desired LyteLoop application deployed. LyteLoop now makes it possible to harness the power of data while consuming less energy. This exceptional technology not only increases data storage performance and utilization, but also reduces the total cost of ownership. Our advance offers a clear and competitive edge for those coping with the limitations of wasteful data storage systems. Using state of the art photonics technology, LyteLoop’s patented IP will enable countless applications including huge power savings for Data Centers, less heat production, cybersecurity solutions and many additional applications.

Currently we are conducting exploratory research of a larger storage system to be used to develop fundamental understanding of the different sub-systems required to create a production scale data-in-motion storage solution.

Error Correction Lead

Lyteloop is looking to expand its R&D team by adding an Error Correction Lead based out of our Great Neck, NY office. The Error Correction Lead will use a combination of standard and custom signal processing techniques along with data encoding to create a system that rapidly and efficiently detects and corrects errors for our data-in-motion solution.

While many error detection and correction methods exist today, we feel that the development of a new and better system may be possible given that our data is constantly moving and travels in very many parallel loops through common physical points in both digital electronic and optical formats. Our data is also fairly constant – the content does not change rapidly in large percentages.

To date most error correction and detection systems rely on the fact that the optical data is first converted to electrical format then evaluated and corrected electronically and ultimately returned to the optical realm. While this type of error handling is necessary, we feel that options to conduct detection and correction solely within the optical domain must be identified and explored.

Qualifications

A candidate for this position will possess both strong theoretical and practical application knowledge in the following areas – ideally in BOTH the Electronic/Digital and Optical domains:

  • A solid understanding of Shannon’s theorems – noisy-channel coding – and capacity limits
  • A solid understanding of signal processing theory and application especially as it applies to noise reduction and filtering / managing noisy communication channels.
  • Specific experience with multiple signal encoding techniques and error detection and correction codes – for example:

*parity checks, hamming codes, turbo codes, fountain codes and error distributions in general

*noise filters and other error correction methodology

  • Specific experience implementing error correction systems either software or firmware (programmable devices)
  • Experience in coherent optical communication systems is a plus.
  • Experience in all-optical signal processing is a plus.

An ideal candidate will come prepared to conduct research into error detection and correction solely within the optical domain considering the following areas:

  • correction of high-speed m-level (analog) signals which are simultaneously phase, amplitude and spatially modulated.
  • development of unique coding and possible forward error correction methodologies that take into account key attribute of data-in-motion: recirculation of virtually the same data in a single location.

Tasks

The Error Correction Lead will be responsible for:

  • conducting extensive research into the applicable leading edge error correction technologies and theory
  • identifying and evaluating and creating error correction schemes useful for LyteLoop in both electronic and optical domains
  • designing proof-of-concept systems and experiments to evaluate the options.
  • evaluation and presentation of the results
  • evolving the design to support production systems.

We offer a generous remuneration package in a modern working environment on Long Island easily commutable to/from New York City.
