The authors present a 16-channel 2D VCSEL-array module. The module uses a plastic-based receptacle package, directly joined to a push/pull fibre connector. The VCSEL-array was passively self-aligned to the package. This module exhibits floorless BER performance at 1 Gbit/s/ch without an isolator, a sensitivity of - 26.0dBm ±0.9dB, and a coupling loss of 2.1 dB ±0.8dB.
