Abstract

A numerical analysis indicates that tolerance stackup effects in free-space optical interconnects are significant even for short systems containing few components. Results prove that worst-case or root-sum-square analyses are not adequate to predict probable performance accurately. A Monte Carlo analysis must be performed.
