The wavelength routed optical network (WRON) [1] is a promising optical interconnection architecture that can be integrated into a System-on-Chip (SoC) to replace traditional wire-connected on-chip micro-networks which pose severe bandwidth limitations on future super large SoC chips. In this paper, we present the architecture of WRON and generalize the routing schemes based on source address, destination address and the routing wavelength.
