Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An optical interconnection network (OIN) is used to interconnect multiple 10 Gb/s ATM switch modules with interconnection fibers running at 10 Gb/s. Cells are stored in the input switch modules (ISM) and scheduled to transmit through the OIN by an electronic controller, where arbitration of output connection is performed. To resolve output contention, an arbitration algorithm is proposed which is capable of handling more than 1 Tb/s traffic. Each ISM has a request arbiter and N logical queues, with an output switch module (OSM) having a grant arbiter. Both the request and grant arbiters perform the arbitration in a round-robin fashion called the Dual Round Robin Matching (DRMM).
