Abstract

The design of a scalable, fully connected. 3-D optoelectronic neural system that uses free-space optical interconnects with silicon-VLSI-based hybrid optoelectronic circuits is proposed. The system design uses a hardware-efficient combination of pulse-width-modulating optoelectronic neurons and pulse-amplitude-modulating electronic synapses. Low-area, high-linear-dynamic-range analog synapse and neuron circuits are proposed. SPICE circuit simulations and an experimental demonstration of the free-space optical interconnection system are included.
