This paper reviews digital optical computing architectures for cellular array processing. Some generalizations such as the cellular hypercube are discussed, and binary image algebra (BIA) is summarized as an analysis, synthesis and programming aid for cellular processors. A particular digital optical cellular image processor (DOCIP) design is presented along with its experimental opto- electronic implementation. Some concepts for "smart-pixel" spatial light mod- ulators which combine optical sources and detectors with high speed electronic logic are given, and their use in optoelectronic processors having holographic or other optical interconnection elements is outlined.
