Abstract:

An Acousto-Optic Technique is used to design and construct a prototype of a processor capable of multiplying a 128 x 128 element matrix by a 128 element vector. The elements of the matrix and the vectors are complex numbers. The device is specified to execute 100,000 vectormatrix products per second with 8-bit accuracy. The performance of each component of the prototype was evaluated as was the impact of component performance on system performance. Keywords Acousto optical Vector matrix product Diode laser Optical processing.
