Paper Abstract

The general principle of operation and 3D architecture of N by N high-performance fully connected optoelectronic packet switching networks for m-bit parallel data transmission through connected pairs of optical channels are proposed. The networks enable for self-routing strictly non-blocking conflict-free networking under arbitrary call requests. The possibility of creating such networks from laser and photodetector arrays, smart pixel structures, free-space optics, lenslets or selfoc lens arrays, and electronic control circuits is considered. The main parameters of the networks are discussed.
