Abstract
A novel design for a dynamically programmable fiber optic based Johnson counter with built-in code conversion is presented. The design essentially exploits low attenuation, precise signal propagation delay, and high fan-in/fan-out factors in optical fibers. The approach is fully compatible with existing high speed digital integrated circuits. A 116 MHz version has been built that demonstrates the potential and the simplicity of fiber-optics in sequential logic processing.
