Application: Optical circuit board and electronic component mounting structure using the same (Patent ID: US20240094485A1)

The optical circuit board described in the patent includes a wiring board with a mounting region for an optical component and an optical waveguide adjacent to this region. The optical waveguide consists of a lower cladding layer, multiple cores, and an upper cladding layer, with alignment marks on the lower cladding layer. The cores are sandwiched between two second regions of the lower cladding layer, and the end surfaces of the cores are exposed on the first surface of the optical waveguide, which is flush with the second surfaces in the first region.

Additionally, the patent describes an electronic component mounting structure using the optical circuit board and an optical component, such as a silicon photonics device. The method for manufacturing the optical circuit board involves layering the lower cladding layer, cores, and upper cladding layer over the wiring board, forming alignment mark members, and creating a linear groove to expose the end surfaces of the cores. The cores and alignment mark members are made of the same material in this manufacturing process.
