The device specifications for an all optical bit-parallel WDM single fiber link for the cluster computer network community are intended for dissemination to the opto- electronic device research community to stimulate synergy between the two, ultimately leading to early availability of new devices to the computer network researchers. It is also hoped that early adoption of these devices by the research community will promote limited production of these devices by industry. Background information on our investigation of this problem will first be given. Then the detailed design of a long distance all optical bit-parallel WDM single-fiber link with 12 bit-parallel channels having 1 Gbytes/sec capacity is given. The speed-distance product for this link is 32 Gbytes/sec-km. Means to improve this speed-distance product using the pulse shepherding effect will be described. Finally, a detailed description of the BP-WDM component requirements is given.
