MWIS at COBO is chartered to create a new standard for optical waveguide-embedded-PCB
to solve the imminent bandwidth and power issues through removing the copper trace.
Traditional PCB design tool is based on the schematic diagram composed of electrical copper traces and the components, where optical components can be populated and interconnection between optical components are generally implemented by overlay of fibers today.
Since MWIS uses embedded optical waveguide instead of fibers which needs to be part of the PCB manufacturing process, there must be some additional steps to utilize the current EDA tools with polymeric film based optical waveguide.
MWIS is now seeking EDA vendors contributions for co-developing MWIS design toolbox for
this additional steps.
