2009-09-28 | Computer aided design of board-level optical interconnects

Novel prototype design and simulation tools are introduced to provide CAD support for board-level optical interconnects.

Two ray optical simulation techniques based on hybrid ray tracing are presented and their capability are demonstrated for selected examples of use.

Furthermore a comprehensive design environment is introduced that integrates the simulators in order to provide a holistic design process for board-level optical interconnects.
