Paper Abstract

Three-dimensional VLSI ( in short, 3-D VLSI ) is a new device technology that is expected to realize high performance systems. In this paper, we propose an image processing architecture based on 3-D VLSI, which consists of optically-connected layers. Since the optical inter-layer connection seems to have a kind of useful functions due to isotropic radiation of the light, we algebraicly formulate them as the picture processing operators. As is described later, those operators are available for applications such as template matching. The availability of proposed template matching algorithm is also verified by simulation.
