Abstract

We present a design for a planar guided-wave polarization-insensitive (intensity-based) optoelectronics module that provides a parallel perfect-match search for database and text processing. The module is based on a content-addressable memory model for parallel information retrieval. We propose the use of planar guided-wave optics with multiwavelength processing to achieve a substantially high degree of performance and parallelism. Based on initial performance analysis, the proposed module is capable of achieving an aggregate processing speed of 1012 bits/s.
