Paper Abstract

In this paper we consider problems of realizing an optical associative memory (OAM) to be used in high-performance computing and database systems computers. According to physical restrictions, the utmost parameters (information capacity, associative access time, and rate) of such a memory are evaluated. Presented is an analysis of various circuit engineering designs of OAM providing an enhancement in the information capacity up to 109 - 1010 bits, an associative access for the time of several nanoseconds with the information capacity being about 106 bits as well as multiport operations.
