Up to now, an optically differential reconfigurable gate array taking a differential reconfiguration strategy and a dynamic optically reconfigurable gate array taking photo-diode memory architecture have been proposed. The differential reconfiguration strategy provides a higher reconfiguration frequency, with no increase in laser power, than other optically reconfigurable gate arrays, however the differential reconfiguration strategy cannot achieve a high-gate-count VLSI because of the area occupied by the static configuration memory. On the other hand, the photo-diode memory architecture can achieve a high-gate-count VLSI, but its configuration is slower than that of the optically differential reconfigurable gate array using equivalent laser power.
