Silicon photonics (SiPh) has been identified as a prime technology targeting cost-effective short-range optical links [1]. Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) is an attractive approach for enabling high aggregate transceiver bandwidth without increasing the number of optical fibers used in the link. Ring-based optical modulators and wavelength-selective filters are attractive devices for scalable WDM SiPh transceivers owing to their compact footprint and moderate power required for thermal tuning. In this paper, we report on a thermally controlled ring-based flip-chip integrated CMOS-SiPh transceiver with 4 channels operating at 20Gb/s.
