We propose an advanced structure of optical coupling which realizes high coupling efficiency and simplifying
alignment, enabling the application of optical interconnect. A high-efficiency optical transmitter module based on this
advanced coupling was fabricated using a VCSEL array. The VCSEL was directly bonded on bracket which is pasted on
a holder with two pin used to locate. And there is a dummy club at the middle of the package for laser driver, favorable
for cooling and reducing the noise caused by ground return. Coupling component were fabricated. And bending loss was
tested. A successful eye diagram at the speed of 3.3Gb/s/ch with 850 nm was accomplished from the VCSEL-directbonded
A parallel optical communication subsystem based on a 12 channels parallel optical transmitter module and a 12
channels parallel optical receiver module can be used as a 10Gbps STM-64 or an OC-192 optical transponder. The bit
error rate of this parallel optical communication subsystem is about 0 under the test by SDH optical transport tester
during three hours and eighteen minutes.
VSR4 links use graded index multimode fibers (GIMMFs) as the transmission medium with operation wavelength 850nm. For cost reasons, VCSEL has been selected as the optical source to VSR4. The minimum bandwidth specification for 62.5um GIMMF in VSR4 is only 400 MHz•km for over-filled-launch (OFL) condition. The distance of 300 meters is limited over transmission rates of 1.25Gbit/s on the basis of this specification. In order to overcome the OFL bandwidth limit by selective excitation of a limited number of modes, conditioned launch technique is investigated. In this paper, based on a comprehensive dispersion theory of GIMMF, a model is built to simulate the transmission of optical signal in GIMMFs and a comparison between OFL and conditioned launch is analyzed. The result can be the guidelines for the best choice of techniques for various LAN and interconnect systems also.
This paper proposes a novel and innovative scheme for 10Gb/s parallel Very Short Reach (VSR) optical communication system. The optimized scheme properly manages the SDH/SONET redundant bytes and adjusts the position of error detecting bytes and error correction bytes. Compared with the OIF-VSR4-01.0 proposal, the scheme has a coding process module. The SDH/SONET frames in transmission direction are disposed as follows: (1) The Framer-Serdes Interface (FSI) gets 16×622.08Mb/s STM-64 frame. (2) The STM-64 frame is byte-wise stripped across 12 channels, all channels are data channels. During this process, the parity bytes and CRC bytes are generated in the similar way as OIF-VSR4-01.0 and stored in the code process module. (3) The code process module will regularly convey the additional parity bytes and CRC bytes to all 12 data channels. (4) After the 8B/10B coding, the 12 channels is transmitted to the parallel VCSEL array. The receive process approximately in reverse order of transmission process. By applying this scheme to 10Gb/s VSR system, the frame size in VSR system is reduced from 15552×12 bytes to 14040×12 bytes, the system redundancy is reduced obviously.
