A novel board-to-board free space optical interconnect which operates on the principle of redundancy is described. Tolerance to misalignment is achieved through the use of 2D arrays of lasers and detectors together with an adaptive alignment algorithm based on redundant transceivers and a defocused optical interconnect. In this system, four 1.25 Gb/s data channels are supported by transmitter modules and receiver modules (2 per board) which contain 3 X 3 VCSEL and 3 X 3 photodiode arrays, respectively. The system was designed to have lateral misalignment tolerance of +/- 1 mm and angular tolerance of +/- 1 degree(s).
