We have developed a modeling tool that integrates optical, cost, thermal, mechanical, and solder models under a common user interface. The models are connected together to allow trade-off studies between parameters existing within different models. We have applied the integrated models to a family of optical interconnect modules. In this paper we will show how the integrated models can help the users design, as well as understand tradeoffs, in optical modules.
