Abstract
A vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) based free- space parallel optical interconnect is presented. The rigid optical link interconnects bi-directionally two PCBs over a distance of 3 inches. The 512 optical channels were grouped in 4 by 8 clusters on a 750-micrometers pitch, where each cluster is a 4 by 4 array of channels on a 125-micrometers pitch. Modules combining both microlenses and minilenses were used to propagate light from the VCSELs to the detectors. Details of the optical design and assembly process are presented.17
