Paper Abstract

Optical link technology will play an increasingly important role for board-level interconnects in servers and supercomputers as a means to keep pace with the increasing intra-system bandwidth requirements. Low-cost and high density optical packaging concepts are required. We describe the development of board-level interconnects based on polymer waveguide technology. In this paper, we focus on flexible optical waveguide sheets and the passive alignment of optical connectors.
