Dynamic Self-organized Computer Architecture (DSAG) based on Grid-components departs computer components to grid components, and dynamically aggregates and organizes these components to realize architecture-on-demand. We take the important feature, that CPU centered design principle should possibly become memory centered design and optimization. We propose a novel computer architecture Gridded Memory Service (GMS), which is based on DSAG. We design and implement a serial, light weight and packet switching optical interconnect protocol, Gridded Memory Interconnect Protocol (GMIP), which is featured as high bandwidth and low latency protocol. It optimizes the link and physical layer to take advantage of very short reach optical interconnect technology. At last we study interconnect effects, and propose the main evaluation principles of bandwidth latency compensation.
