As the demand of information capacity grows, the adoption of optical technology will increase. The issue of resistance and capacitance is limiting the electronic transmission bandwidth while fiber optic delivers data at the speed of light and is only limited by scattering as well as absorption. Electronic-photonic convergence is needed for communication systems to meet the performance requirement. Hence, an increasing number of Very-Large-Scale Integration (VLSI) electronic photonic chips are going to be designed and utilized. However, packaging for the chip is one of the major challenges for optoelectronic industry to overcome due to its high cost and lack of standards. This thesis examines the trend in semiconductor technology and also in the package performance requirement. A transceiver platform to meet the future information capacity demand is proposed by reviewing several materials and devices of current state. Lastly, the package design is demonstrated with the analysis of cost, performance, and materials.
