A synthetic joint Fourier transform (SJF¹) correlator is proposed for the
realization of generalized logic problems. As a case study, a multi-channel
SJF¹ correlator is employed to realize a multi-output logic unit. For a given
correlator set-up, this particular scheme ensures the maximal utilization of
space bandwidth product. ¹his work establishes a pragmatic approach for
implementing real-time programmable content addressable memory for in-
formation processing. 1998 Elsevier Science ¸td. All rights reserved.
