Glass waveguides fabricated by ion-exchange are a promising technology for short reach on-board optical interconnects. We developed an optical connector concept for the interconnection of multimode glass waveguides to fiber ribbon cables. Our concept is based on the MXC expanded beam connector, and it uses a modified version of the US Conec PRIZM MT ferrule that is installed on the edge of the glass waveguide panel by adhesive bonding. The paper will discuss the connector concept, the assembly process, the demonstrator platform and the characterization results.
