Abstract

In this Letter, we propose and demonstrate the concept of a free space optics-based parallel high-speed reconfigurable card-to-card interconnect architecture employing microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based steering mirror arrays in conjunction with VCSEL and photodiode arrays. A bit-error rate of 106 and a receiver sensitivity below 11.5dBm are experimentally attained with a proof-of-concept 3×310Gb/s reconfigurable card-to-card optical interconnect demonstrator.
