Abstract

Symbolic substitution is being considered for use in several optical processing systems. Two fundamentally different architectures that implement symbolic substitution will be studied. A typical application (N-bit binary addition) is chosen as a benchmark for system level performance, and the strengths and weaknesses of several implementations of these two architectures are identified and compared.
