Paper Abstract

A new architecture for multilayer parallel processing of focal plane array (FPA) images is presented. The RETinally INspired Architecture (RETINA) is inspired by the multilayer parallel structure of biological vision systems. The hardware implementation of RETINA exploits a waveguide hologram (WGH) array generator in conjunction with an integrated spatial light modulator (SLM) array to provide the connection between layers of processing nodes.
