Abstract
IN THIS PROJECT, A NOVEL OPTICAL INTERCONNECT TOPOLOGY FOR A DIGITAL MULTIPROCESSOR ENVIRONMENT WILL BE IMPLEMENTED. THE OPTICAL INTERCONNECT TOPOLOGY PROMISES TO RELIEVE PROBLEMS EXISTING IN THE PRESENT ELECTRONIC AND OPTICAL INTERCONNECT NETWORKS FOR THE SINGLE-INSTRUCTION-MULTIPLE-DATA (SIMD) COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE. FOR AN INTERCONNECT AMONG ALL PROCESSING ELEMENTS (PES), THIS UNEXPLORED OPTICAL INTERCONNECT TOPOLOGY PROMISES SEVERAL IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES OVER THE CONVENTIONAL RECTANGULAR ARRAY TOPOLOGY, SUCH AS THE USE OF SPACE-INVARIANT OPTICAL ELEMENTS, IDENTICAL INTERCONNECT LATENCY, AND NETWORK RECONFIGURABILITY.
