Paper Abstract

Novel architecture of an optoelectronic digital computer for cellular matrix multiplication based on the binary sign-bit number system is proposed. Such a computer comprises dynamic memories based on circulation fiber-optic delay lines, which ensures loading of processor elements up to 90%. Owing to the use of cellular logic algorithm in the optoelectronic computer, it is possible to perform multiplication on matrices of any dimensions employing only one base element. By expanding functional capabilities of the elementary processor, the proposed specialized computer can be transformed into a multipurpose optoelectronic computer.
