In this paper, a bi-directional 4-channel x 10-Gbps optoelectronic transceiver based on this silicon optical bench (SiOB) technology is developed. A bi-directional optical sub-assembly (BOSA), fiber ribbon assembly, PCB with high frequency trace design, transmitter driver, and receiver TIA IC are included in this transceiver. The BOSA and PCB also have some specific design for conventional chip-on-board (COB) process. In eye diagram measurement, the transmitter can pass 10-G Ethernet eye mask with 25% margin at room temperature; Bit-error-rate (BER) performance from the transmitter to receiver via 10-meter fiber can achieve 10- 12order, which confirm the transceiver's ability of 10-Gbps data transmission per a channel.
