Adaptive rotation models and traffic patterns to reduce light loss in networks on optical chip
Large number of processing cores integrated into a single chip have high growth rates. Networks on an optical chip are one of the simplest ways to solve the addressing problem between bulk interconnected networks. That's why high-performance, high-bandwidth multi-processor chips will be needed in the future. Optical chip networks were introduced as a new generation of on-chip networks that overcome all the limitations of this type of network and have many advantages such as high communication bandwidth, low transmission delay. And power consumption is low. On the other hand, networks on optical chips have challenges, one of the most important of which is the routing of optical data in the optical layer, because how the path is selected affects the optical loss factor. In this paper, routing algorithms free from the impasse of adaptive rotational models, circuit switching and various traffic patterns to reduce light loss in the optical layer by considering a 5-port unobstructed router and two-dimensional grid or Mesh will be provided. Finally, we compare the simulation results with similar methods such as the XY-based algorithm and examine the improvements obtained.
