OEIL


Optical and Electrical Interface and Link Analysis Environment

Interconnects are key technologies in modern information systems, and electrical interconnects and optical interconnects are the two major choices. While electrical interconnects use technologies such as low swing and differential pair to achieve high speed and low power, optical interconnects promise high bandwidth, low latency, and pin reduction.

OEIL is a modeling and analysis environment developed for optical and electrical interconnects and interfaces. It provides comprehensive analytical models for the two types of interconnects in terms of power consumption, bandwidth density, latency, crosstalk noises, attenuation, and sensitivity. The analytical models are verified by multiple published implementations. The following diagram is an overview of OEIL.
