Electro-optical circuit boards (EOCB) provide electrical circuits and optical waveguides tightly integrated on a single device. They can thus serve as substrate enabling cost-effective assembly for photonic and electronic ICs. This presentation will discuss recent progress and achievements in developing EOCBs as part of PIC based optical communication devices and will show some novel sensor packaging approaches based on this technology.
