Low cost optical components enable new emerging applications for short distance interconnects. We developed novel VCSEL transceiver modules based on electronics-style plastic packages for large core PCS fiber systems. The transmission data rate is 500Mbps over a wide ambient temperature range from -40°C to 105°C. For lower data rates we developed green LED based transmitters for extended reach applications using POF. On the receiver side MSM photodetectors exhibit a high sensitivity of -18dBm at a data rate of 3.2Gbps. The large area MSM receivers are essential components for high speed large core optical fiber links.
