Paper Abstract

We detail the use of simplified error models to accurately simulate and evaluate the performance of an optical linear algebra processor. The optical architecture used to perform banded matrix-vector products is reviewed along with the linear dynamic finite element case study. The laboratory hardware and AC-modulation technique used are presented. The individual processor error source models and their simulator implementation are detailed. Several significant simplifications are introduced to ease the computational requirements and complexity of the simulations. The error models are verified with a laboratory implementation of the processor, and are used to evaluate its potential performance.
