Abstract : A design methodology was developed that can be used to efficiently implement large-scale Photonic Page Buffer (PPB) ICs with application specific performance and functionality requirements. The PPB chip has numerous potential applications including photonic switching, non-volatile data storage (buffering), interfacing smart pixel systems with electronic hosts, implementing cache memory for optical memory devices, template matching, spatial format conversion, clock rate conversion, optical wavelength conversions, bandwidth smoothing, clock synchronization, and independent flow control for input and output channels.
