Paper Abstract

The associative processor architecture presented in this paper offers a new approach which takes advantage of developing optical logic devices as well as several beam-steering techniques. The beam-steering techniques (beam combination and beam expansion) rely on the interconnection capabilities of optics to perform several broadcasting functions which are useful in associative memory operations.
