Paper Abstract

We propose an all-optical parallel interface based on the HIPPI-6400 protocol [1]. WDM techniques and optical switches asawellas buffers are used to implement the parallel interface. Optical switches can switch all wavelengths in one switching operation, so the switch fabrics can be simplified. Since the information is kept in the optical domain, the cost and latency can be reduced. Through the optical transparency, variable bit rates of data micropackets can be used in different connections.
