We detail the technical considerations for producing reconfigurable spot patterns with an integrated two-dimensional acousto-optic deflector. Practical limitations concerning the generation of high-density interconnect arrays are described. Experimental results for 13 × 13, 21 × 21, and 50 × 50 spot arrays are presented.
