Abstract:

THE USE OF GLOBAL INTERCONNECTS IN DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPUTERSAT THE GATE LEVEL SHOWS THE POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE GATE INTERCONNECT BANDWIDTH PRODUCTS OF UP TO 10**16 WITH POWER CONSUMPTION ON THE ORDER OF 100W. IN THIS STUDY, METHODS OFHARNESSING THESE INTERCONNECTS FOR WIDEWORD DIGITAL COMPUTATION PRIMITIVES SUCH AS EXCLUSIVE OR, ADD, AND MULTIPLY ARE INVESTIGATED. EFFICIENT IMPLEMENTATION OF THESE PRIMITIVES COULD UTIMATELY MAKE DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPUTING COMPETITIVE WITH CONVENTIONAL OR SUPERCONDUCTOR IMPLEMENTATIONS OF COMPUTER HARDWARE. DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPUTERS OFFER A TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN ACHIEVE EXTREMELY HIGHPROCESSING THROUGHPUT IN A DENSE, LOW POWER PACKAGE. DEFENSE APPLICATIONS INCLUDE SIGNAL PROCESSORS FOR WEAPONS, SPACE BASED STRATEGIC SURVEILLANCE, AND ACOUSTIC SIGNAL PROCESSING. COMMERCIAL USES AS SEISMIC SIGNAL PROCESSING, AERODYNAMIC MODELING SIMULATION, AND IMAGE PROCESSING.
