Parallel data-transmission system

Nov. 1, 1995
The Optical Interconnect Modules transmit data over 12 parallel fibers for distances up to 100 m, with each channel transmitting at speeds up to 250 Mbit/s. Transmitter arrays, fiber ribbon, and detector arrays all include 12 channels, allowing the system to transmit 8-bit parallel data as well as clock, control, and parity signals. The InP lasers have 2-mA threshold currents, and power consumption per channel is 200 mW per module. The modules run on 3.3 V and have CMOS interface compatibility
