Over the last decade significant progress in optoelectronic devices and their integration techniques have made Free-Space Optical Interconnects (FSOI) one of the few physical approaches that can potentially address the increasingly complex communication requirements at the board-to-board and chip-to-chip levels. In this paper, we review the recent advances made and discuss future research directions needed to bring FSOI to the realm of practice.
