Abstract : The Optoelectronic Technology Consortium has been established to position U.S. industry as the world leader in optical interconnect technology by developing, fabricating, integrating and demonstrating the producibility of optoelectronic components for high-density/high-data-rate processors and accelerating the insertion of this technology into military and commercial applications. This objective will be accomplished by a program focused in three areas: (1) Demonstrated performance: OETC will demonstrate an aggregate data transfer rate of 16 Gb/s between single transmitter and receiver packages, as well as the expandibility of this technology by combining four links in parallel to achieve a 64 Gb/s link; (2) Accelerated development: By collaborating during the precompetitive technology development stage, OETC will advance the development of optical components and produce links for a multiboard processor testbed demonstration; and (3) Producibility: OETC's technology will achieve this performance by using components that are affordable, and reliable, with a line BER10 (exp-15) and MTTF10(exp 6) hours.
