An optical processor based on the Cellular Logic Image Processor (CLIP) architecture1 has been implemented. The processor incorporates an external input, programmable processing unit, thresholding unit, data synchronisation unit, and an external output (see Fig. 1). All elements of the optical processor are under control of a host electronic computer which also provides the input data and reads the final output result.
