29 September 1994 Smart pixel designs for image-processing

Image Processing is widely regarded as a successful application of electronic technology. However, there is a wide gap between commercially successful image processing implementations and system design that have been proposed by the research community. Of particular interest are image processing architectures that use large number of densely interconnected processors to compute and transmit image date in parallel 2-D format. The interconnect density and packaging constraints of electronic packaging technology preclude efficient implementation of such architectures. In contrast, optoelectronic integrated circuits combined with surface-normal optical interconnects offer the promise of a technology platform that is inherently better suited for the implementation of interconnect intensive image processing applications.
