Scaling Trends for Picojoule-per-Bit WDM Photonic Interconnects in CMOS SOI and FinFET Processes

Abstract

This paper presents a link analysis for optical interconnects based on CMOS scaling toward FinFET devices. An on-chip wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) link is modeled assuming silicon photonic ring modulators, WDM multiplexers and demultiplexers, and photodetectors. A high-speed CMOS transceiver is designed and evaluated using 28-nm FD-SOI and 14-nm… (More)
