Computer Aided Design and Simulation of Free Space Optoelectronic Information Processing Systems
MotivationThere is a need for design tools that are capable of modeling optoelectronic systems in order to exploit the potential of emerging optoelectronic devices. These tools will allow system designers to perform trade-offs between technological and architectural solutions to design problems using a combination of physical, functional and parametric models. We are building such a design and analysis tool for mixed technology Free Space Optoelectronic Information Processing Systems (FS-OIPS).
Define System Abstractions[FSOIPS-table.gif]
Define Models in those AbstractionsPhysical - Geometric relationship of optical components and signal paths
Functional/Behavioral - Signal values in space and time
Parametric -System performance measures
