Abstract

Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) techniques provide many advantages for building optical interconnect networks for massively parallel processing (MPP) systems. A design for a 1024-channel network for MPP systems based on the interconnection-cached network with vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) arrays with one wavelength is described. We then show how a WDM version with four different wavelengths can increase the channel density. We also show how a WDM system can reduce the fan-in loss by a factor of 4. All the VCSEL’s in each array are of the same wavelength, while different arrays use different wavelengths. We describe our experimental WDM subsystem containing four VCSEL arrays, operating at wavelengths of 843, 950, 970, and 980 nm, and three different WDM filters for multiplexing–demultiplexing. We present the operational results of the subsystem at 1 Gbit/s per channel.
