Paper Abstract

Parallel optical interconnects based on vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers are being widely deployed today in switching and routing systems. Almost all of the major OEMs today are using parallel optics in their flagship products to solve interconnect problems where they are most relevant: at the bay-to-bay, shelf-to-shelf, and card-to-card levels. The density and capacity of these systems are already being constrained by the capacity of these one-dimensional links. We expect that next generations of systems will need high-density 2D parallelinks to further improve the performance-cost metric. Ultimately, we believe this metric can be optimized by directly integrating interconnect together with data processing and switching circuitry.
