We present three ultrafast optical packet processing technologies required for future optical packet-switched networks: an optical label swapper, a photonic RAM (random access memory), and a packet compressor/decompressor. These hybrid optoelectronic devices are key components of our serial/parallel- conversion-based optoelectronic system that can process ultrafast asynchronous burst optical packets functionally using slow but smart CMOS circuits with low power consumption.
