Abstract
Analog optical vector matrix processors (AOVMP) have been implemented over the past three decades utilizing a variety of methodologies. Most of these methodologies were dependent on external modulation of the laser source. Photonic Systems Incorporated has furthered the development of the AOVMP by using a 64 channel analog modulated vertical cavity surface emitting laser diode (VCSEL). The novel analog modulation of the VCSEL is performed by linearizing the output of the VCSEL to 8 bits using real-time 12 bit look-up tables. VCSEL analog modulation characteristics and linearization techniques are discussed along with AOVMP performance.
