Abstract
We describe a polymer fiber image guided (PFIG)-based optical interconnect circuits which incorporates add/drop capabilities. 2D array data transmitting in segments of PFIG's can be inserted and taken away at various free-space add/drop nodes between these segments. The add/drop nodes are implemented using free-space mini-optical components. A 4-node hybrid circuits using PFIG's to transmit bit-parallel data and free-space components to perform add/drop is experimentally demonstrated. Various power and resolution measurements of the implemented systems are presented.
