Abstract

Conditions are determined for which optical interconnects can transmit information at a higher data rate and consume less power than the equivalent electrical interconnections. The analysis is performed for free-space optical intrachip communication links. Effects of scaling circuit dimensions, presence of signal fan-out, and the use of light modulators as optical signal transmitters are also discussed.
