Process and Pricing

In order to get acquainted with our Optical Processing Unit technology, you may request a Free Trial account. Without any cost, you will be able to run some existing examples, benchmark the technologies on your own.

On the other hand, if you want to want to do an actual research project you may request a free LightOn Cloud for Research (LOC4R)
 account. Having more credits at your disposal you will be able to run your own tests and perform your own small projects. You may find more details about the LOC4R program on the dedicated LOC4R page.

If you need even more credits or dedicated access to an OPU then you may select the “Dedicated” package through which you have unlimited LOC access for 1 week.

For completely unrestricted access you can lease an Appliance and host it on your own premises. See more details about the available arrangements here.
