Physical design of optoelectronic system-on-a-package: A CAD tool and algorithms

Conference Paper

We propose a new approach to the physical design of optoelectronic system-on-a-package (SOP) using optical waveguide interconnect technology. The objective is to improve the performance of SOP by replacing long distance electrical interconnects with optical waveguide interconnects. A new simultaneous optimization algorithm for module placement and routing of electrical and optical interconnects is introduced. It not only improves the performance of SOP, but reduces the simulation time. Even though a small portion of electrical interconnects are replaced with optical interconnects, more than 21% improvement of the SOP performance is achieved. © 2005 IEEE.
