The development of a new hybrid packaging method is reported, where the front end radio frequency (RF) element, namely a modified quasiYagi antenna, is integrated with an optical transmitter and an optical receiver on single PCB for dual-mode, i.e. RF/free space optical communication. The VCSEL and the pin diode are placed on the antenna directors to share(More)
This paper presents new results on integrated devices for radio and free-space optical dual-mode communication. Two novel hybrid packaging schemes using two different microwave printed antenna designs are presented for the integration of radio-optical front-end circuits on a planar compact printed circuit board with shared electrical and structural(More)
Optical wireless technology is emerging as a key broadband access technology for short-range, broadband wireless applications, offering several advantages over conventional RF systems in terms of connection speed, power efficiency, low transceiver complexity, networking security, and unregulated bandwidths in the THz range. This paper reviews design aspects(More)
