Title: Distributed Optoelectronic Switching Modules for Highly Dynamic On-Chip and Chip-to-Chip Interconnects
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: F29601-02-C-0070
Award Amount: $99,223.00
 

Abstract:

"The primary goal of the proposed Phase I SBIR effort is to develop high speed, highly dynamic chip-to-chip interconnects utilizing hybrid waveguides and GaAs based VCSEL and photodetector technology in order to relieve the chip-to-chip interconnectbottleneck. The interconnects are accomplished using a unique distributed switching architecture that is low cost, fault tolerant, redundant, format independent, and dynamically reconfigurable.This architecture and the associated hardware can be readily implemented to realize high speed, dynamic chip-to-chip interconnects for demanding computing and signal processing applications. OptiComp Corporation occupies a 7,000 square foot facility which includes a full service, backend semiconductor fabrication cleanroom and optoelectronic device integration laboratory, a optoelectronic testing area, and a MBE based growth facility. OCC's design center includes optoelectronic based modeling software for VCSELs and waveguide structures, as well as full EDA schematic capture and mask and PCB layout. These facilities support optoelectronic device modeling and design, growth, fabrication,integration, and test. The proposed program will offer a dual-use commercialization opportunity for high speed chip-to-chip interconnects because it will provide a low cost solution that is highly dynamic, redundant, fault tolerant, and format independent.This chip-to-chip interconnect scheme has significant ma
