Abstract

To successfully exploit the benefits of optical technology in a tightly-coupled multicomputer, the architectural design must reflect both the advantages of optics and the limitations of optics. This paper describes a class of such architectures, based upon inverted graph topologies. Two instances of this class (an inverted hypercube and an inverted mesh) are further explored to illustrate their properties. We then consider the physical construction of these systems, demonstrating the relevant technological components necessary to manufacture a working system.
