D. N. T. Kumar, Qufu Wei

Abstract


Integrated optics and Optical computing are now a mature technology offering many types of devices and manufacturing techniques. Recent breakthroughs in the ?eld of silicon photonics showed low-loss insulators, passive wave guide devices, high speed optical switches, detectors, silicon lasers, and silicon ampli?ers, optical amplifiers etc. These devices have provided the possibility to construct CMOS compatible optical circuits with low power consumption, high bandwidth and low latencies. A critical component that we intend to focus is on considering Branching Programs as CAD tools for the design of future electronics. Hence, BPs as viable means to accomplish the task of propelling the R&D of Electronics, are considered and simulated using HOL software based on boolean theory. We believe our research is one of the remarkable pioneering efforts, into the promising aspects of Branching Programs as CAD Tools.
