Paper Abstract

The integration of fiberoptic, optoelectronic, and electrical components to form hybrid devices has many advantages to the end user. These include: (i) Elimination of fiber pigtails from the PCB which can either be "snagged" or bent, which in the latter case may incur a loss penalty. (ii) Optimization of system performance by control of the total packaged system. That is, the performance of the transceiver can be optimized because the individual components that make up the device can be selected and/or traded off for given performance requirements. (iii) A compact system can save "real estate" on the PCB and result in lower system costs. (iv) Provides a "user friendly" subsystem that removes the requirement for highly skilled engineers in cross-disciplines. In this paper, details of the integration of single mode lasers, PIN detectors, HCS optical fiber couplers and electronic drive/detector circuitry are presented.
