The marriage of optical and digital processing techniques into hybrid optical/digital systems is a powerful and practical system architecture. It allows one to retain the high-speed and parallel processing features of an optical processor while achieving the control, flexibility, and data analysis advantages of digital technology. In this paper, we describe our new microprocessor-based optical/digital interface, its performance specifications, operations achievable, and present several examples of this new system.
