Paper Abstract

A 12-fiber unidirectional parallel optical link called PAROLI with discrete Tx and Rx modules and a total bandwidth exceeding 12 Gbits/s is presented. The Tx and Rx module dimensions are 50 mm length, 18 mm width, and 10.5 mm height. The packages have 72 pins with 0.65-mm pitch in surface mount technology. The optical port is an MT-compatible 62.5-mm core graded-index multimode fiber array connector. The supply voltage is 3.3 V. The electrical signal interface is compatible to the Low Voltage Differential Signal Standard (LVDS, IEEE P1596-3 standard).
