Abstract

We present a parallel algorithm for the reliable detection of two-dimensional binary data in page-oriented memories. The development of the proposed pseudodecision-feedback equalization (PDFE) method is motivated by the classical decision-feedback equalization receiver. The technique takes advantage of the known or the estimated optical system characteristics to mitigate space-variant blur and additive thermal noise. We extend the method to correct for fixed-pattern errors including magnification, rotation, and transverse shift. Advantages of the PDFE algorithm include its parallel design, low computational complexity, and local connectivity. A system-capacity metric is used to compare the performance of the PDFE receiver with other conventional approaches, including the simple threshold, the 1:2 modulation code, and the Wiener filter. Results show the PDFE to outperform all the above techniques over a variety of channels for both incoherent and coherent systems. Implementation issues are discussed, and a MOSIS (Metal-Oxide Semiconductor Implementation Service) 2-μm design is presented.
