Paper Abstract

Programmable Opto-electronic Multiprocessor systems (POEMs) are reviewed in terms of their architecture and system implementation considerations. We compare POEMs with VLSI computers based on scalability, performance and technological feasibility. Our results show that for parallel computers requiring a large number of globally con- nected simple processing elements POEM systems out perform their VLSI counterparts. We also report on the implementation of the POEM prototype currently in progress at UCSD.
