Abstract: The iNEMI Optoelectronic Roadmap for 2004 is focused on optical communication. After reviewing the business picture - which includes the probable irreversible move of commodity-like volume manufacture to Asia and low cost labor geographies, it identifies technology changes on the horizon.

The chapters are divided by packaging level into Level 0 (on chip interconnections), Level 1 (packaged devices), and Level 2 (modules and card assemblies). Emerging technologies may impact optical interconnects are also discussed. The appendix describes global standards including the JISSO packaging levels and the IPC standards development work.

Key words: Optoelectronics, VCSEL, transmitters, emerging technologies.
