We review recent advances in the development of silicon photonic integrated circuits for high-speed and high-capacity interconnect applications. We present detailed design, fabrication, and characterization of a silicon integrated chip based on wavelength division multiplexing. In such a chip, an array of eight high-speed silicon optical modulators is monolithically integrated with a silicon-based demultiplexer and a multiplexer. We demonstrate that each optical channel operates at 25 Gb/s. Our measurements suggest the integrated chip is capable of transmitting data at an aggregate rate of 200 Gb/s. This represents a key milestone on the way for fabricating terabit per second transceiver chips to meet the demand of future terascale computing.
