We demonstrate operation of a wavelength division multiplexed chip-to-chip optical interconnect using surface-normal electroabsorption modulators, and a modelocked laser as a single broadband source. Individual CMOS circuits and optoelectronic devices have been shown to work at data rates approaching 1 Gb/s.  Such a system not only could decrease costs and simplify packaging, but also provides additional benefits such as system re-synchronization, improved receiver sensitivity, and latency reduction.
