Paper Abstract

Considerable attention is being focused on the development of high speed optoelectronic devices not only due to their inherent speed and parallelism but also because of the ease with which these devices can be interfaced with existing electronic devices. This paper presents a novel optoelectronic device called the Optical Distributed Arithmetic Unit (ODAU). The ODAU is comprised of a laser, lens and semiconductor components which are integrated to perform high speed binary arithmetic based on the theory of distributed arithmetic. A simple carry unit is responsible for performing the necessary carry operations in order to make the ODAU a binary device and also function as a data regeneration unit. A description of the ODAU as well as a mathematical model and statistical equations are presented. Simulation as well as analytically derived performance measures and a simple application involving the implementation of a filter are also given.
