Paper Abstract

The authors have developed a new electro-optical signal processing module, just a few cubic inches in size, capable of performing a broad variety of general linear filtering operations at very rapid rates, typically greater than 109 multiplications per second. The distinct feature of this processor is its use of incoherent optics to achieve speed and parallelism in its operation. References 1-6 describe previous work in this technology. The present paper reviews the characteristics of this processing technique, describes the mathematical operations it is capable of performing, gives the operating parameters of the current implementation, and presents plans for modifications to even further improve its performance.
