  • Provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of photonic devices for networks-on-chip
  • Enables readers with design techniques for silicon photonics to overcome the fundamental limitations of electronics for core-to-core and core-to-memory communications
  • Includes coverage of design automation techniques, supplemented by provided software, Photonic and Electronic
  • Network Integration and Execution Simulator (PhoenixSim)

This book is a product of an emerging interdisciplinary field that is bringing photonic communications to address many of the challenges associated with scaling computing systems performance. In addressing this cross-disciplinary topic the book bridges the gap among the devices, tools, and architectures for realizing photonic interconnection networks in future computing. This book provides:

  • A comprehensive discussion on the usage and integration of silicon photonics interconnect technologies, including distinct properties of key photonic devices and recent engineering breakthroughs.
  • Design methodologies for photonic links and the three main classes of photonic network-on-chip architectures applicable to future computing systems.
  • A presentation of the design tools and simulation environment used to characterize photonic interconnection network architectures and evaluate the impact on computing performance.
