A transmission data format for high-speed optical parallel interconnections is proposed and a 4-channel transmitter and receiver link module operating at up to 1.2 Gb/s per channel is demonstrated. The data format features "Group Multiplexing and Coding." In this scheme, input several tens channels are multiplexed and coded in group into reduced channels, resulting in burst-mode compatible, skew-free transmission, and low power-consumption of a link module. Experiments with fabricated modules comfirm that our data coding in multichannel optical transmission is promising for use in high-speed interconnections in information and switching systems.
