Optical Waveguide PCB Interconnects

From Printed Circuit Design and Fab :

Optical technology continues to displace copper for for high-speed data transmission, but wide spread adaptation is still five years away.
Increased computing power is the primary driver in a move towards the optical interconnect. This drives miniaturization, high density circuits and high date rates resulting in a bottleneck at the electrical connections. Electrical (copper) interconnections, under these conditions, compromise performance and require increasing costs to shield and to condition signals to overcome electrical interconnection issues.
