As one type of field programmable gate array (FPGA), optically reconfigurable gate arrays (ORGAs) have been undergoing continual development. ORGAs are optoelectronic devices consisting of a holographic memory, a laser array, a programmable gate array. Since the storage capacity of such holographic memory is greater than that of two-dimensional semiconductor memory, an ORGA can accommodate more huge gates and provide higher performance than FPGAs. A programmable gate array of an ORGA has numerous photodiodes that can be reconfigured optically using configuration contexts on a holographic memory. Although the photodiodes are normally used only for a configuration procedure, the photodiodes are useful for direct input of optical communication signals. This paper therefore presents a demonstration of optical communication on ORGA's programmable gate array.
