Paper Abstract

A Gbyte/s-class optical-interconnection subsystem for a parallel computer was developed and it operated stably in a testbed system of the parallel processing machine RWC-1 (Real World Computer-1). Although it consisted of MMF parallel optical modules, data was transmitted over 1 km because of the deskew operation of a one-chip transmitter and receiver LSIs. Random packets were transmitted without error over 17.5 hours, which correspond to a BER of 10-15.
