Chapter 2

Transceivers, Packaging, and Photonic Integration

Bert Jan Offrein,      IBM Research, GmbH, Säumerstrasse 4, 8803 Rüschlikon, Switzerland

This chapter reviews electro-optical packaging and integration technologies for short distance optical communication. With increasing system performance and bandwidth requirements, optical communication is applied for ever shorter distances. Consequently, novel packaging strategies are required that enable a close integration of optical technology within the system. Today, pluggable transceivers are applied at the system edge and embedded optical modules for onboard assembly are emerging in bandwidth hungry applications. The first high-performance computing systems are now on the market in which optical ...
