Abstract
Current limitations for interconnection and control in electronic integrated circuits, from the architectural and technological point of view, are presented. Different kinds of interconnection problems within a chip are briefly presented, according to a specific classification. Then, the authors show how they have incorporated optoelectronic devices using a standard CMOS technology to resolve one interconnection problem: the chip clock distribution and control. Some advantages and limitations of this technique used to sequence and control a 8*8 retina are presented. The authors discuss how these experiments, with other techniques used to output data, can provide a possible approach to an optical bus.
