CLAP


Optical Crosstalk and Loss Analysis Platform

Crosstalk noise is an intrinsic characteristic of photonic devices used by optical interconnect networks and a potential issue. We systematically developed CLAP (Crosstalk and Loss Analysis Platform), an open-source platform for analyzing crosstalk noise and loss in optical interconnect networks, such as optical network-on-chip and inter-chip optical network.

CLAP is implemented in C++ and can analyze both coherent and incoherent crosstalk noise, loss, and SNR in optical networks and optical routers based on WDM or a single wavelength. CLAP has a comprehensive library of photonic devices to construct arbitrary optical routers and optical networks, including detailed optical switch model, I/Os, waveguide crossings, waveguide bendings, waveguides, optical terminators, parallel switching elements, crossing switching elements, and filter elements. Mesh-based, folded-torus-based, and fat-tree-based optical networks are predefined and provided in the network library. CLAP can be easily extended to include more optical network architectures.
