Paper Abstract

A novel optical computing technique using recoded quaternary signed-digit arithmetic is presented in this paper. An efficient shared content-addressable memory based optical implementation which employs a fixed number of minterms independent of the operand length is developed. This technique requires the minimum number of minterms when compared to the similar previously reported techniques. An alternate algorithm for quaternary signed-digit arithmetic is .also suggested.
