Multi-Chip Modules (MCMs) are considered as the next major step in the evolution of high performance microelectronic packaging. Advances in the performance of very high speed MCMs are limited by problems associated with interconnecting devices using metallic interconnects within the module. The need for faster interconnects for gigabit logic MCMs has been discussed in this thesis. Techniques to avoid the problem of taking high speed interconnections through multilayer substrates include radiative and optical techniques. The present research work concentrates on a radiative interconnection technique. [Continues.]
