Presented in this paper is one of several possible electrooptical engagement array architectures for performing matrix–matrix multiplication using incoherent light. Essential components of this new signal processing device include two dynamic light valves operating in a reflection mode, a 2-D photodetector array, and a single polarizing beam splitter.
