High-speed optical interconnects are crucial for both high performance computing and data centers. High power consumption and limited device bandwidth have hindered the move to higher optical transmission speeds. Integrated optical transceivers in silicon photonics using pulse-amplitude modulation (PAM) are a promising solution to increase data rates. In this paper, we review recent progress in silicon photonics for PAM transmissions.
