Reaching the physical boundaries of the electronics-based communication approach has enabled photonic-based systems, which promise high-bandwidth and low power consumption, especially in multiprocessor systems, to be an alternative to electronic systems on chips. Real-time systems are specialized systems where tasks that cannot be completed in time cause high costs, and particularly communication with sensors and actuators have high importance. In this study, a sensor data distribution model is presented for multi-processor real-time systems that communicate with the photonic network on the chip. The study provides the distribution of the sensor data to the processors on the chip with the photonic infrastructure, and the results show that the proposed model is an effective approach for real-time systems.
