Abstract

We present a general-purpose three-dimensional interconnection network that models various parallel operations between two data planes. This volume interconnection system exhibits reconfigurable capabilities because of parallel and externally weighted interconnection modules, called nodes. We propose a generic optical implementation based on the cascading of two planar hologram arrays, coupled with a bistable optically addressed spatial light modulator. The role of this component is discussed in terms of energy regeneration and spatial cross-talk limitation. As an example, a binary matrix–matrix multiplier is implemented that uses a ferroelectric liquid-crystal light valve.
