Abstract

The three‐dimensional (3‐D) integrated circuit has recently been attracting interest as a new structure for device implementation, and numerous studies are being made also from the viewpoint of the system design. This paper considers the 3‐D integrated circuit, where the layers are connected through light transmission (called 3‐D optically connected integrated circuit). It is suggested that operational processings unique to the 3‐D structure can be realized. The function is formulated algebraically as the image processing operation, and an application example to the template matching is presented. The improvement ratio of the matching processing speed by the proposed algorithm is evaluated by simulation. A discussion is made on the pipeline processing utilizing the 3‐D structure.
