Multimode Waveguide Interconnect System

The Multimode Waveguide Interconnect System working group creates standards for optical waveguide-embedded-PCB to solve the imminent bandwidth and power issues through removing copper traces.


Traditional PCB design tools are based on schematic diagrams composed of electrical copper traces and components, where optical components are populated and interconnection between optical components are implemented by an overlay of fibers.


As using embedded optical waveguides instead of fibers needs to be part of the PCB manufacturing process, there are additional steps to utilize the current EDA tools with polymeric film based optical waveguide.
