Abstract

This paper proposes a new architecture of photonic ATM switch to eventually realize beyond Tbps throughput ATM operation in the nationwide B-ISDN. The proposed architecture is based on Vertical to Surface Transmission Electro-Photonic devices (VSTEPs), which can be used both as an optical buffer memory and as an optical self-routing circuit. SinceVSTEP is an integrated two-dimensional array, the VSTEP based opticalbuffer memory using massively parallel optical interconnections, based on the free-space optical beam propagation, is an effective solutionto achieve ultrahigh throughput in the buffer. The optical cell signal speed in the proposed optical buffer memory can reach around 10 Gbps. By using the VSTEP's function as the optical header-driven gates in a two-dimensional array, the high-speed and large capacity optical self-routing circuit can be fabricated without being limited by the electric control circuit operation. In the optical self-routing circuit, contention resolution to prevent collision among cell signals, can be easily achieved. The numbers of possible input and output port in the self-routing circuit are estimated to be around 100. Experiments on operations of both the optical buffer memory and the optical self-routing circuit with contention resolution are successfully carried out. Finally, it is shown that the three-dimensional implementation using free-space optical interconnections is effective to construct high throughput optical self-routing circuit with small hardware amount.
