Abstract-- Intrachip optical interconnects can outperform elec-
trical wires but the required parameters for optical components
are yet unknown. Here the ITRS is used as a reference point to
derive the requirements that optical components must meet.
I. INTRODUCTION
A significant effort has recently been made to develop build-
ing blocks for on-chip optical interconnects (OIs), including
light sources, waveguides, WDM (wavelength division multi-
plexing) components, modulators, detectors, etc. While some
predictions have already been made [1], [2], there is still no
clear performance specifications that optical components need
to exceed in order to effectively replace electrical interconnects
