Abstract

Performance and efficiency of multiple processor computers depend strongly on the network that interconnects the distinct collaborating processors. Constrained connectivity forces much of the potential computing speed to be used to compensate for the limitation in connections. The availability of a multiple parallel I/O connections allows full unrestricted connectivity and is an essential prerequisite for an interprocessor network that is able to meet the ever growing communication demands. This paper emphasizes the design, building and application of an electrooptic communication system [EOCS]. The EOCS uses dedicated free space multiple data distributors and integrated optically writable inputbuffer arrays with fully parallel access.
