Paper Abstract

This paper documents an investigation on the architectures and algorithms for performing logic (or Boolean equations) using self electro-optic effect devices (SEEDs). Three algorithms and architectures for performing logic are examined -- using lookup tables with series connected SEEDs (or Symmetric-SEEDs), using a preset cycle with series connected SEEDs, and using NMOS and CMOS architectures. Contrasts are examined between the architectures with cascadeability, component, and optical interconnectivity considerations.
