We propose efficient implementation of a fuzzy associative memory system based on a fuzzy-sets decomposition technique. The technique involves decomposing the input fuzzy sets of a fuzzy associative memory into orthogonal subsets so multiple fuzzy rules can be superimposed without loss of information. This technique can significantly reduce the optical hardware and computation needs of fuzzy associative memory systems.
