Paper Abstract

We present here the MILORD project developed by the CERT for three years. MILORD is, multiprocessor architecture organized around a 34 x 34 LCLV optical crossbar network, interconnecting 8 INMOS T414 microprocessors with 4 bidirectional links each and a ninth T414 host processor with 2 links on the network. This project intends to demonstrate the ability for optics to reach a higher degree of connectivity in parallel architectures.
