Paper Abstract

We present the architecture and optical design for a smart pixel optoelectronic system that performs very high throughput networking and three-dimensional single-instruction multiple-data (SIMD) parallel signal processing. The smart pixel chip in the system is called a TRANslucent Smart Pixel Array (TRANSPAR), and it contains a 2-D array of fine-grain processing elements with additional functionality for performing carrier-sense multiple access with collision detection (CSMAJCD) networking. This chip is currently being fabricated by Lucent through the DARPA/GMU/CO-OP foundry program in 0.5 micron CMOS with flip-chip bonded multiple quantum well (MQW) optical modulators and detectors (II.
