Paper Abstract

Vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) arrays are designed and used for 10-channel parallel optical data links, OPTOBUS™, to transmit data at a speed of up to 800 Mbits/s per channel. The interface between the VCSELs and the optical fiber ribbons is based on molded plastic waveguide technology. A bit error rate of 10-15 is demonstrated.
