System architects in the communications and computing industries have been waiting for the arrival of cost effective fiber optic links to relieve the copper BW*distance constraint for intra and short reach inter-system connections. Parallel optics has been targeted at this application space for several years, but up until the current generation of systems, these applications largely remained copper. The current change-over in interconnect media is partially due to the engineering challenge in meeting performance requirements with electrical interconnects as well as the progress in parallel fiber optic components. Gore has been investigating aggressively in the research and development of the technologies required for producing high bandwidth, reliable, and cost effective parallel fiber optic links. The first commercialization of this effort will be the nLIGHTEN parallel optical modules. This paper details the design, fabrication, and operation of this high performance, short haul communication system.
