Free-space optical interconnects will soon be able to provide input/output bandwidths to a VLSI chip in excess of a terabit per second. ... The successful application of this technology to parallel distributed processing systems depends on the need for high-bandwidth interconnects and the ability of the architecture to sustain a stream of ... Acknowledgment: The authors express their gratitude to Fouad Kiamilev, Joseph Ford, Osman Kibar, and Haldun Özaktas for stimulating discussions on the subject of optoelectronic computing architectures. ...doi:10.1006/jpdc.1996.1292 fatcat:jlf6tcpecrcqdmjhw66f3jtfo4
We show how free-space optical interconnects and wavelength-and-space-division-multiplexed networking on single-mode fibers can provide switched interconnection between multiple nodes in a distributed ... The AMOEBA switch addresses the challenge to produce a large-scale, nonblocking packet switch through dense integration of photonic devices directly onto silicon VLSI circuits. ... We are investigating interconnection networks based on fiber and surface-normal optical interconnects for data-transport and silicon VLSI for switching. ...doi:10.1109/2944.778301 fatcat:j5k44mhsxfhzdnh7tvwy47ev2y
