New surface mount optical coupling solutions for short reach and chip level connection are presented. These
miniaturized optical interconnects have advanced micro-optics integrated within fiber connectors, chips and light
sources. Interconnect fabrication is compatible with Si CMOS processing, III-V processing and automated surface
mount assembly processing. The combination of these fabrication and assembly processing methods enable dramatic
cost reductions for optical interconnects.
