An optical analog-to-digital converter for bitwise coding

Sergey V. Sokolov, V. V. Kamenskij


It is proposed an optical ADC for bitwise coding, which is applied for both electric and optic signals conversion to binary code. ADC operation speed is comparative with purely optic information processing devices.
