Abstract

A fiber-optic bipolar tap implementation is described. The proposed scheme utilizes 2's complement-number representation and digital multiplication by an analog convolution algorithm. Simple experimental verification of the scheme is presented. The addition of programmability to the taps results in the realization of a fast, flexible processor for manipulating binary quantities.
