Paper Abstract

This paper describes a high-speed communication link that serializes and transmits 40-bit-wide data over fiber at rates of up to 800 Megabits per second (Mbps). The medium can be either 50/125 (mu) or 62.5/125 (mu) fiber. The compact card containing hot rod and CD laser-based fiber optics can be used for serial links of up to 300 m at 800 Mbps, 1 km at 400 Mbps, and 2 km at 200 Mbps. The applications include high-speed networks and point-to-point communication.
