Firehose Architectures for Free-Space Optically Interconnected VLSI Circuits

Ashok V. Krishnamoorthy, David A.B. Miller
1997 Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing  
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.  ...

The AMOEBA switch: an optoelectronic switch for multiprocessor networking using dense-WDM

A.V. Krishnamoorthy, J.E. Ford, F.E. Kiamilev, R.G. Rozier, S. Hunsche, K.W. Goossen, B. Tseng, J.A. Walker, J.E. Cunningham, W.Y. Jan, M.C. Nuss
1999 IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics  
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.  ...
