Smart pixels are discussed in terms of the following neurally inspired functions: memory, sensors, intrapixel circuitry, interpixel communication, and optical outputs. The types of liquid crystals and electronic circuits used in VLSI/liquid crystal arrays, and their electrooptic properties are reviewed. Examples of electrically addressed and optically addressed liquid crystal smart pixels, and results from a 128×128 VLSI/FLC SLM are presented. This device has a response time of 150 μs, a contrast ratio of 8:1 measured on a row containing more than 50 pixels, and a frame rate of 4.7 kHz. Improvements of these devices are discussed in terms of what the silicon technology can yield in the future. A few examples in which the liquid crystal on silicon technology has been applied are presented
