Abstract

We discuss a novel application of a photonic circuit for integrated high-performance neuromorphic signal processing. Large fan-in is an especially important capability in distributed systems; however, electronic physics impose tradeoffs between bandwidth performance and fan-in degree. A circuit developed in the field of radio frequency (RF) photonics, wavelength(λ)-fan-in does not exhibit a corresponding tradeoff and can circumvent prior challenges to fan-in in optical distributed processing appli-cations.
