Abstract
We design and simulate six- and seven-port optical routers based on Mach–Zehnder interferometer switches that are suitable for photonic networks-on-chip. The routers are composed of 12 and 22 switching elements as the possible 30 input/output and 42 input/output routing paths are verified at a data transmission rate of 20 Gbps for six- and seven-port optical routers, respectively. We use an OptiSystem simulator to evaluate the proposed optical routers from the aspects of insertion loss, Q-factor and minimum bit error ratio.
