Paper Abstract

Optical communications technology has seen highly successful implementations in telecommunications and local area networks and is now being explored for data, control, and clock applications within digital systems, such as computers and signal processors. The requirements for optical interconnections within these systems are significantly different from those applications where optical communications are used today. Digital systems require short high-speed interconnections with miniature transmit/receive modules that dissipate little power. These interconnections must also be compatible with standard digital packaging, power supply voltages, and environmental conditions. This paper explores insertion opportunities for optical interconnections within digital systems, the implementation issues, and specific examples of this technology.
