Optical Interconnects on and in Printed Circuit Boards

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Two types of short distance optical interconnects for on-board applications are presented: Small diameter plastic optical fibre (POF) links and multimode polymer waveguide layers integrated in multilayer printed circuit boards (PCB). POF links with fibre numbers up to 128 and link lengths up to 50 cm are realized with total transmission loss values below 2 dB at 660 nm. First tests of 10 cm long temperature stable multimode polymer waveguides laminated into standard multilayer PCBs demonstrate the capabilities of combined electrical-optical circuit boards.
