We have proposed parallel optical interconnection technology, or ParaBIT, for high-throughput, low-cost optical interconnections and already developed a prototype parallel optical interconnect module called "ParaBIT-0," which has a total throughput of 28 Gb/s (700 Mb/s 40 channels). We are now developing a compact, high-throughput module called "ParaBIT-1," which has a total throughput of 60 Gb/s (1.25 Gb/s 48 channels) and is designed to achieve the highest-ever throughput density of 3.3 Gb/s/cc. In this paper, we describe the packaging structure, optical coupling structure and transmission characteristics of ParaBIT-1. We also discuss the technical prospect of realizing a parallel optical interconnect module with the bit rate of 2.5 Gb/s/ch.
