This paper presents a LabView-based interchip electro-optical parallel interconnect simulator. Such links are a possible solution for the interconnect bottleneck in future digital systems. The links and their characteristics are quite different from the traditional long distance optical links: the components should be small, low-cost, temperature-insensitive and simple; and the latency (the overall signal delay) and power dissipation must be kept under control. This simulator focuses in particular on the modelling of the resonant cavity LED and the performance analysis.
