The smart pixel device arrays which integrates electronics processing technology with the interconnection and communication features of optics. Prototypes of GaAs FET-SEED smart pixels have been integrated with computer produced holograms, 2-D fiber bundles, frequency stabilized lasers and a new optomechanical packaging to set up a five-stage, 32 × 16 free-space optical switching fabric. Recently, this system has been further developed rendering the five-stage operation effective at 155 Mbit/s.
