The technologies associated with integration and packaging have a significant impact on the overall system. In this paper, we review a silicon photonic macrochip system and its associated packaging that will allow dense wavelength division multiplexed optical links to be intimately integrated and comanufactured with the switching electronics. Such a system could achieve switched optical interconnect at 1pJ/bit, provide waveguide transport bandwidth densities in excess of 10 Tbps/mm, and surface normal optical I/O as needed from these waveguides at a density on the order of 100Tbps/mm2. For this to happen, we anticipate a number of integration and packaging advances.
