Abstract
We study the impact of using on-chip forward error correction (FEC) in two-dimensional optical data link (2D-ODL) applications. We demonstrate that FEC can reduce the required launch power for a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), improve the reliability of 2D-ODLs, reduce on-chip power consumption and relax the requirements of the optical system. Both analytical and simulation results are presented to support our arguments.
