Comparison of electrical and optical interconnect

Journal Article

Electrical and optical interconnects were compared to evaluate superiority of data rate, channel power dissipation and power consumption in driver as a function of line length. Transmission lines were simulated by HSPICE transient simulator and measured for two different physical conditions, with and without via, to obtain eye diagrams and S11 and S22 data. The simulation result on the model of the transmission line without via was matched to the result of the measurement to justify simulations with the CMOS inverter as driver.
