Paper Abstract

We present our approach to a low-cost, highly scalable opto-electronic integration platform based on a commercial CMOS process. In this talk, we detail the performance of the device library elements and highlight performance trade-offs encountered in monolithically integrating optical and electronic circuits. We describe an opto-electronic integrated circuit (OEIC) design toolkit modeled after the standard electronic design flow, which includes automated design rule checking (DRC) and layout-versus-schematic (LVS) checks covering all types of circuit elements. As an example of integration, we detail the design of a multi-channel transceiver chip with 10 Gbps/channel optical data transmission speed and report on its performance.
