Greedy demand of high speed communication has made electrical interconnection on board a bottleneck. Electro-Optical Printed Circuit Board (EOPCB) was proposed to relieve the pressure by introducing an optical layer to common printed circuit board. Nowadays, most of the proposed EOPCB solutions focused on the design of optical transceiver structure and optical interconnection was used directly to replace high speed electrical interconnection by employing transceiver arrays. This approach would need many VCSEL-PIN pairs for a single high speed chip on board, thus increase the cost and also decrease the efficiency of optical interconnection. To defeat the weakness, a network approach, where only one VCSEL-PIN pair is required for a chip, is proposed in this paper. A novel Optoelectronic integrated circuit (OEIC) architecture is introduced to make this network approach possible.
