Paper Abstract

Recent work on optical table look-up devices has been generalized to include control functions. These functions introduce programmability to this approach to optical digital computing. A general formalism for performing logic functions using positionally encoded look-up tables is developed and applied to a programmable Boolean gate and a residue arithmetic module. Hardware implementations of the tables are described.
