Paper Abstract

A fully packaged opto-electronic cross-connect interconnect fiber circuit for data communication applications is demonstrated. Using bit-parallel optical link technology, the circuit offers EO and OE conversion capability, as well as 100 X 100 cross-connectivity. Using this technology together with an array of 10 X 10 digital electronic switches, fast cross-connect switches of the scale of 100 X 100 can be implemented. The insertion loss of the compact 100 X 100 cross-connect interconnect circuit ranges from 0.4 dB to 2.9 dB among all possible connections. Optical transmissions with bit-error-rate of < 10-12 can be maintained at near 1 Gb/s channel bandwidth when the circuit is powered by the OPTOBUS chips. The system is expected to have an aggregated interconnect bandwidth near 100 Gb/s when being fully connected with the OPTOBUS chips.
