Paper Abstract

In this paper, we study an electro-optical crossbar for highly parallel computing. This VLSI architecture interconnects a set of processors on a single chip using Gallium Arsenide laser diodes and has a switching time in the order of nano-seconds. We also propose modified versions of this model for non-Von-Neumann computations such as, neural and data-flow computing. In the last section, we discuss applications in signal processing.
