|dc.description.abstract||This paper deals with an implementation technique for using an optical perfect shuffle interconnection network as a free-space communication pathway for a massively parallel architecture to overcome the constraint of the electrical interconnection. The previous work on implementation issues for the optical pathway are reviewed, and a new technique based on geometric optics is proposed. Laser diode arrays are used to transmit information and photodetector arrays as receivers. A pulse drive circuit for the laser diode and a preamplifier for the photodetector are designed. A preliminary experiment is conducted for the proposed configuration.||en|
