Paper Abstract

Optical packages with multiple optical I/Os and without optical pigtails or conventional connectors are proposed. These conceptual packages are of a hybrid PGA style with LSI chips and arrays of optical sources and detectors. A central theme is the use of only moderate extensions of current single chip and PWB packaging technologies. The light coupling between devices and waveguides is to be achieved using an array of lenses and/or microprisms. The feasibility of such a package is discussed from engineering manufacturing and repairability viewpoints.
