Paper Abstract

A new paradigm for an all-to-all optical interconnect is presented. It could be part of an interconnection fabric between parallel processing elements and the first level of the cache in a computer system. Parallel processing has traditionally aspired to improve performance of such systems. An optical interconnect raises a new possibility: obtain both improved performance and significant cost reduction with respect to standard serial computer system models.
