Abstract

We propose and evaluate the feasibility of a multiprocessor interconnect based on free-space optics for reducing network latency. The proposed interconnect supports high-throughput network links and can exploit locality of memory references through reconfiguration. Our analysis shows that the proposed interconnect can, in principle, support hundreds of nodes in the static mode and tens of nodes in dynamic mode.
