Paper Abstract

Concurrent computing systems are effective only if the data rates to and from processing elements are sufficient to keep the processing elements occupied. The inherent parallelism of optics makes it a natural candidate for information transfer while the existing technology of silicon very large scale integrated (VLSI) circuits is the most suitable for performing computational tasks. In this paper we present the use of fixed optical interconnects for information transfer in electronic based concurrent computing systems. This capability is based on the development of electrically addressable spatial light modulators (SLM's) fabricated as part of integrated circuit devices.
