This paper describes the design and implementation of an innovative high- speed data buffer system for optical interconnects based on electrically reprogrammable FPGAs. It is characterized by high transfer rates and the dense integration of electrical and optical components on the basis of a printed circuit board (PCB). The high data rates and the highly parallelized system operation require a specific architecture and careful signal integrity design for proper functionality.
