Abstract
A new optoelectronic hardware architecture of a neural network processor is proposed. A basic cell in the system is composed of electronic neurons that share the same time-distributed input; the input is introduced by means of an optical broadcast. The system combines the computational strength of electronics and the communication strength of optics in an optimal manner and it is potentially scalable to a very large number of neurons. A description of the system is given and the behavior of a first prototype is shown.
