Paper Abstract

Novel fully parallel one-step adders that use the redundant signed-digit number representation are proposed for optical computing. A new method for spatially encoding the signed-digit is proposed based on digit grouping and pixel assignment. The scheme of digital grouping of the signed-digit numbers enables a huge reduction of the number of symbolic substitution computation rules involved in the arithmetic computations and consequently increases the speed of arithmetic operations. Furthermore, the proposed spatial encoding scheme effectively increases the space bandwidth product of the spatial light modulators and decreases the size of the matched spatial filters of the optical system.
