Abstract
A preliminary design is presented for an Optical Interface Message Processor (OPTIMP) which exploits the high bandwidth, parallelism, multidimensional capability, and high storage density offered by optics. In the proposed system, the time-consuming operations in parallel processing networks, such as switching and routing, are fully implemented in optics. The design is free from optical/electrical conversion bottlenecks and can perform switching and routing in the Gigabits/s range. The design can be adapted for interconnection networks for massively parallel computers.
