Abstract

In this paper we present a general-purpose discrete correlation processor (DCP) expected to be the building core block of a digital optical computing system. The DCP-1 is embodied by optoelectronic devices such as a VCSEL and a complementary metal-oxide silicon photodetector. The application targets of the DCP-1 are optical interconnection and various types of digital optical computing. It is expected that digital optical computing techniques coupled with the optoelectronic technology will provide large capability and flexibility in information processing. Introduction of a processing scheme of optical array logic enlarges the applicable field of the DCP-1 as well as its processing capability. With the experimental DCP-1 a bit error rate smaller than 10-9 was obtained for A · operation under a 500-kHz clock rate.
