Optical transmission and interconnects have become the preferred choice for any distances from ultra long haul of >2000 km in the telecom applications to short reaches of 100m in the datacom applications. In a few years as bandwidth requirement increases optics will be widely used in distances of a few meters in the intra-rack down to a few centimeters in the intra-board communications. Ultimately intra-chip communications could use optics as well. This seminar examines industry developments that are driving towards terabit/s optical links. These developments are driven by different economic and technical requirements depending on the applications, mainly telecom transport, datacom and high-performance computing. These requirements drive technology, architecture and design choices, standardizations and multi-source agreements. This seminar is intended ideally for ICs and systems designers outside of the optical communication field to get a comprehensive picture of the current solutions and the developing trends in the industry. The seminar is organized according to three general applications: telecom, datacom and parallel optics. It dives into some of the pertinent theories of the optical medium and optical components, end-user requirements and how they affect circuit and technology choices for each of the applications.
