Abstract

A new associative memory system applying incoherent correlators is presented. With this system, which is composed of a nonlinear processor and optical–electronic feedback loop, memorized patterns can be recalled without cross talk. To realize a high association ability and stable operation, a synthetic discriminant function filter is applied. Results of the computer simulation and actual experiments by using the system that is constructed here are demonstrated.
