Paper Abstract

Free-space parallel optical interconnects represent a possible solution to the off-chip communication bottleneck. We review developments in this field and compare the performance of some recently demonstrated systems with the projected future requirements of high speed digital systems. We also discuss progress in the area of design methodologies, tolerance analysis and packaging techniques. Manufacturing issues are considered and a comparison is made with other optical interconnect technologies.
