Paper Abstract

A Code V simulation of a free-space optoelectronic data distributor, commonly known as the Kaleidoscope, is presented. The device is designed to interconnect processing elements in massively parallel processors, and the simulation results indicate that the device is capable of interconnecting 64 processing elements with a 64-bit word in a fully connected topology. The results further suggest that the number of processing elements, in the future improved version of the device, may be increased to 1024 and beyond.
