Abstract

An acoustooptic technique was used to design and construct a prototype of a processor capable of multiplying a 128 × 128 complex-element matrix by a 128 complex-element vector. The device was specified to execute 105 matrix–vector products per second with 8-bit resolution. The performance of each component of the prototype was evaluated, as was the impact of component performance on system performance.
