ABSTRACT
Interconnect has become a primary bottleneck in inte-
grated circuit design. As CMOS technology is scaled,
it will become increasingly difficult for conventional
copper interconnect to satisfy the design requirements
of delay, power, bandwidth, and noise. On-chip op-
tical interconnect has been considered as a potential
substitute for electrical interconnect in the past two
decades. In this paper, predictions of the performance
of CMOS compatible optical devices are made based
on current state-of-art optical technologies. Electrical
and optical interconnects are compared for various de-
