Optoelectronic Microsystems Integration

Journal Article (Review)

The methods used in integration and processing of optical functions into an electronic system are discussed. Planar lightwave circuit interconnections at the board, module and chip level are being used for optical connections at very short distances. The integration of optical functions such as interconnection and sensing into system-on-package (SOP) and system-on-a-chip (SOC) application stands at a threshold similar to what electronics faced in the year 1970. The method and costs of integration are critical to the implementation of optics in electronic systems.
