Abstract

The algorithmic, electronic, and optical aspects of the implementation of a perfect-shuffle interconnected bitonic sorter are analyzed. The performance metrics such as the bit output data rate and the power consumption of the system are quantified. The sorting module is designed to demonstrate the parallel nonlocal interconnection of smart-pixel arrays and the use of optical-image control masks in a functioning information processor.
