Paper Abstract

Guided-wave optical interconnections for interchip data transmissions and clock distributions are demonstrated. The optical interconnection circuit consists of a silica-based guided-wave circuit, laser diodes and photodiodes. The interconnection topology adopts the star coupler network used in Local Area Networks as a model. The laser diodes and photodiodes are integrated with the guided-wave circuit. Preliminary experiments on a 4-chip interconnection circuit yielded a 340 Mbps data rate and a 250 MHz clock frequency.
