Paper Abstract

Parallel optical interconnection modules has been used for inter- and intra- hardware systems to overcome the bottleneck of electrical interconnection. The next-generation high-throughput telecommunication systems over several tera-bit-per second and high-speed computer systems over several GHz require chip-level optical interconnection as well as MCM-level optical interconnection. This paper describes chip-level optoelectronic packaging technologies to construct future high-performance telecommunication and computer hardware systems. The key technologies include optoelectronic chip on film(OE-COF) packaging technology, and fiber-less optical I/O-BGA packaging technology using microlenses for optical input or output terminals. The OE-COF is composed of flip-chip bonded optical devices and LSIs on the optical waveguide film with impedance-matched electrical lines for flexible OE packaging. The BGA package can allow wide-misalignment of ±50μm, which is compatible with the performance of current electronic assembly machines, and is useful for high-density and low-cost packaging on boards.
