Parallel optical interconnects in printed circuit boards

View publication


Polymer waveguides embedded in a printed circuit board offer a substantial increase in the achievable bandwidth density compared with today's electrical interconnects. We present our results on the polymer waveguide technology and the building blocks that perform the optoelectronic conversion. Specific challenges in integrating optics in a printed circuit board are addressed. Data transfer measurements are presented.
