Paper Abstract

An optical backplane is introduced which is capable of high data rate transmission. It consists of a stack of circular light-guiding plates arranged one on top of another and is therefore called Optical Parallel Plate Stack (OPPS).

In this paper we present the results of an analysis of optical power transmission and signal dispersion within the OPPS system. Measurement results and a hardware realization ofan 8-bit parallel bidirectional optical backplane using the OPPS are reported, too.
