Paper Abstract

A hybrid neuroprocessor(NP) with bipolar optical interconnections and a personal computer(PC) for nonlinear operation and system control is described. The interconnection topology of the 1024 neurons in the processor can be constituted either a single layer feedback network or a multilayered feedforward one. By using different optical interconnection weight masks(IWN4i) and corresponding PC program, a variety of processing tasks can be performed in the NP.
