Abstract:

The Optoelectronics Technology Consortium has been established to position U.S. industry as the world leader in optical interconnect technology by developing, fabricating, intergrating and demonstrating the producibility of optoelectronic components for high-densityhigh-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 Gbits between single transmitter and receiver packages, as well as the expandability of this technology by combing four links in parallel to achieve a 64 Gbits link. 2 Accelerated development By collaborating during precompetitive technology development stage, OTEC will advance the development of optical components and produce links for a multiboard processor testbed demonstration and 3 Producibility OETCs technology will achieve this performance by using components that are affordable, and reliable, with a line BER10-15 and MTTF10 6 hours.
