Abstract

For an ATM switch system, we have developed a 100-Gb/s I/O throughput optical I/O interface ATM switch multichip module (MCM) that has 320-ch optical I/O ports. This MCM is fabricated using ceramic (MCM-C) technology and very-small highly-parallel O/E and E/O optical converters. It uses 0.25 μm CMOS ATM switch LSIs and has a total I/O throughput of up to 160 Gb/s. A prototype module with total I/O throughput of 100 Gb/s has been partially assembled using 8 optical I/O interface blocks, each composed of a 40-ch O/E converter and a 40-ch E/O converter; the data rate per channel is from DC to 700 Mb/s. Using this module we developed an optical I/O interface ATM switch system and confirmed the operation of the optical interface.
