Paper Abstract

The limitations ofmetal interconnections in MultiChip Modules (MCM''s) are examined primarily with respect to their bandwidth arid propagation loss. Comparison is made with the alternative ofemploying optical interconnections. Some of the technical issues which lie ahead to make a Photonic Multichip Package (PMP) possible are explored. Certain organic materials are identified as promising candidates for implementing optical interconnections. These are found to be interesting because of their low deposition temperatures and because they lend themselves to fabrication by techniques that are already finding acceptance for metal interconnections in thin film MCM manufacturing.
