Paper Abstract

Development in both systems and applications are driving semiconductor technology towards gigascale and terascale integration. The electrical interconnection networks are severely limiting this effort due to RC delay, clock skew, crosstalk, and electromigration. Many novel communication mechanisms have been proposed, but the optical interconnection remains as the most promising candidate. This paper is to review the optical interconnection in high-density data communications, from the point of view of semiconductor technology, and present the most recent developments and results.
