Abstract

On the basis of the symmetric encoding algorithm for the modified signed-digit (MSD), a 7 * 7 truth table that can be realized with optical methods was developed. And based on the truth table, the optical path structures and circuit implementations of the one-step MSD adder of ternary optical computer (TOC) were designed. Experiments show that the scheme is correct, feasible, and efficient.
