Optical networks-on-chip (ONoCs) are currently still in the concept stage, and would benefit from explorative studies capable of bridging the gap between abstract analysis frameworks and the constraints and challenges posed by the physical layer. This paper aims to go beyond the traditional comparison of wavelength-routed ONoC topologies based only on their abstract properties, and for the first time assesses their physical implementation efficiency in an homogeneous experimental setting of… CONTINUE READING
