1 December 1991 High-speed board-to-board optical interconnection
Author Affiliations +
We have demonstrated for the first time board-to-board optical interconnection having a 60 GHz bandwidth with a signal-to-noise ratio of 22 dB at 60 0Hz. Board-to-board optical interconnection was realized using microprisms which had a measured coupling bandwidth of more than 250 nm. The graded index (GRIN) of the polymer waveguide allows us to implement such an interconnection scheme on an array of substrates. The implementation of a high speed on-board transceiver in connection with a polymer waveguide lens will generate a fully on-board optical interconnect involving modulation/demodulation.
