Two-dimensional opto-electronic chips are gaining acceptance as a means to dramatically increase data transfer bandwidths. Thermal issues combine with the laws of statistics to stand in the way of achieving the low failure rates demanded by system engineers. Redundancy constitutes a promising avenue to pursue for circumventing the problem and ensuring the desired component life expectancies.
