Paper Abstract

Historical objections to optical digital computing are critically examined. Theoretical limits for fiber optic fan-in and fan-out factors are discussed. The potential development of highly sophisticated optoelectronic programmable logic devices (OPLA's) based on high fan factor designs is considered. Statistical measurements of a fiber optic fan-out factor of 2940 are presented.
