Two dimensional arrays of InGaAsIJnP based multiple quantum well surface modulators driven by standard high-speed CMOS have been demonstrated in experimental parallel optical interconnect and artificial neural processing systems. Transition times were fast enough for lOOMBit/s operation and the potential exists to increase array dimensions to include 100''s of devices and transmission rates to many GBit/s. Novel architectures employing computer generated holographic beam splitters and weight matrices outside the modulator and detector layers were employed.
