Abstract
Parallel optical memoirs offer the capability for storage and retrieval of optical data in 2D pages resulting in high throughput data rates. The optical data page can be received by 2D arrays of 'smart' photodetector elements that perform fast parallel data decoding and error control, thereby providing an efficient optoelectronic interface between the memory and the electronic computer. In this paper, ewe consider the design of smart photodetector arrays in terms of hardware complexity, optical power requirements, and electrical power dissipation. Scalability and throughput are discussed with respect to these parameters.
