It is well known that either Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) or pulsed Code Division Multiple Accessing (CDMA) can be used as a basic accessing format in structuring an optical communication network or high speed parallel data processor. Each such system has its own inherent advantages and disadvantages when used as the principle format. When the two concepts are combined into a single hybrid WDM/CDMA format, some of the disadvantages of each format can be offset by the presence of the other, producing a more robust networking system with improved communication performance. In this paper these hybrid concepts are presented, and some of their hardware and architecture impacts are developed.
