Paper Abstract

Advances in computational speed and system complexity are pro-ceeding at a rapid pace. As systems become more complex and demands for computation speed increase, parallel processing becomes the solution to meet-ing the requirements for future systems. A significant bottleneck in these and other systems is interconnect and communication problems between chips and subsystems. In addition, communication systems designers need rugged and reliable high speed transmitters and receivers. This paper discusses the design, development, and performance of GaAs optoelectronic integrated circuits for application in optical interconnection control and signal processing. We review the requirements and approaches for realization of practical optical intercon-nects and report on work in progress at Rockwell. Performance and design criteria of optical transmitters and receivers as well as data obtained on 1:8 demultiplexed receivers are given.
