Paper Abstract

A 16-channel plane-to-plane optical interconnect suitable for a multilayer multichip module computer system was demonstrated. a single diffractive optic element was used to focus the outputs from a 4 X 4 array of LEDs son one plane to a corresponding array of photodetectors on a second plane. This architecture can be used to overcome the speed, interconnect number and density, and power limitations of traditional electronic interconnects.
