Abstract

The mesh-connected tree is a two-dimensional interconnect topology that combines aspects of a conventional tree network and a two-dimensional nearest-neighbor mesh network. Because of its topological features, a mesh-connected tree has the potential to be implemented with planar optoelectronic interconnect concepts. We examine the feasibility of employing vertical-to-surface-transmission-electro-photonic optical array switches together with planar micro-optical components for the future implementation of an optoelectronic mesh-connected tree interconnect.
