Paper Abstract

A second generation of fiber optic based optoelectronic programmable logic arrays (OPLA's) is introduced. The relative merits of these devices is critically examined with respect to first generation OPLA technology. Specific applications are cited including a novel type of fiber optic based OPLA operating as an optically controlled crossbar switch. The concept of bit-slice reconfigurability with such a switch is discussed. System descriptions and system photographs are presented for two prototype bit-slice crossbar switches that have been constructed. A comparison of the capabilities of various categories of optical crossbar switches is presented.
