Using optoelectronic interconnections in electronic systems offers interesting perspectives. In particular the ability to massively interconnect parallel electronic planes in free-space leads to systems with a much higher interconnectivity than would be possible using only electronic interconnections. This paper addresses the quantitative modeling of such future systems. Our technique is based on a modification of Rent's rule, which is well suited for evaluating optoelectronic architectures. It leads to a characterization of how to use optoelectronic interconnections and how much is expected to be gained from it. As a direct result we draw some preliminary conclusions on how to use optical interconnections in optoelectronic architectures.
