Paper Abstract

The Programmable Opto-Electronic Multiprocessor (POEM) combines free-space optical interconnects, optoelectronic devices, and electronic processors to perform computations. This paper investigates a specific POEM architecture for a multistage interconnection network application. For the chosen system, there is an optimum combination of optics and electronics. The effect of varying optoelectronic device parameters on the system performance is also examined.
