    The technical issues involved in the construction of smart pixels are discussed from the viewpoint of their system applications to both image processing and optical interconnections. The smart pixels for image processing are aiming at sensing and processing images by one chip. The smart pixels for chip-to-chip interconnects are aiming at eliminating the pin-bottleneck among LSI chips.
