A novel self-routed slot-switching scheme using an integrated optic directional cou ler is outlined using a pulse interval coded optical content adressable memory ( PICOCAM ) . The integrated optic devices required for its implementation is also outlined. This bit-switching approach avoids the bottleneck in speed imposed by the electronic drive circuitry in electrooptic switches.
