We present both the estimation of main parameters and the previously obtained experimental data related to some algorithms and components for all-optical digital processors- multipliers. An all-optical multiplication in a mixed binary format may be designed with an array of non-collinear second-harmonic generation based optical AND-gates arranged in a square-law optically nonlinear medium. The modern approach, based on the concept of arranging light beams in space and time using the regime of spatiotemporall solitons or light bullets, is generally discussed.
