In this article, we review our recent work in WDM-enabled optical RAM bank architectures and their optical all-passive peripheral modules that form a complete 16GHz optical cache memory physical layer design for Chip Multiprocessor configurations and we report on recently integrated InP-optical memory cells as the fundamental building blocks.
