  author={Ashok V. Krishnamoorthy and Ron Ho and Xuezhe Zheng and Herb Schwetman and Jon K. Lexau and Pranay Koka and Guoliang Li and Ivan Shubin and John E. Cunningham},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
We present a computing microsystem that uniquely leverages the bandwidth, density, and latency advantages of silicon photonic interconnect to enable highly compact supercomputer-scale systems. We describe and justify single-node and multinode systems interconnected with wavelength-routed optical links, quantify their benefits vis-a-vis electrically connected systems, analyze the constituent optical component and system requirements, and provide an overview of the critical technologies needed to… CONTINUE READING
