Abstract

We describe the use of a holographic microlens array for broadcasting instructions optically to a massively parallel VLSI silicon chip. Thanks to Bragg selectivity, it is possible to distribute other optical signals besides instruction broadcasting, such as for example input data, by adjusting the directions and wavelengths of the various beams in such a way that some go through the holographic array undisturbed.
