Abstract : Advances in optical technology, such as low loss Optical Passive Star couplers (OPS) and the possibility of building tunable optical transmitters and receivers have increased the interest for multiprocessor architectures based on lightwave networks because of the vast bandwidth available. Many research have been done at both technological and theoretical level. An essential effort has to be done in linking those results. In this paper we propose optical designs for two multi-OPS networks: the single-hop POPS network and the multi-hop stack-Kautz network; using the Optical Transpose Interconnecting System (OTIS) architecture, from the Optoelectronic Computing Group of UCSD. In order to achieve our result, we also provide the optical design of a generalization of the Kautz digraph, using OTIS.
