Paper Abstract

A high-bandwidth, free-space integrated optoelectronic interconnect system was built for high-density, parallel data transmission and processing. Substrate-emitting 980 nm vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) arrays and photodetector arrays, both driven by complimentary metal- oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) circuitry, were employed as a transmitter and receiver. We designed, fabricated, hybridized, and packaged the VCSEL transmitter and photoreceiver arrays. Data rates above 1 Gbs for each channel on the VCSEL/CMOS emitter and 500 MHz for each channel on photoreceiver were measured, respectively. We integrated the optical interconnects using free-space optical alignment and demonstrated serial and parallel transmissions of digital data and video images.
