Smart Pixels with Smart Illumination (SPSI) is a recently developed technology that enables the monolithic integration of two functionalities-optical illumination and detection- into arrays of optoelectronic ‘pixels’ in a compact and robust manner. To facilitate the design and analysis of systems involving SPSI technology using network simulators, this paper presents and validates a block-diagram approach to construct compact models for the individual SPSI pixels. In addition, the utility of such models is demonstrated through simulations of a potentially new application of SPSI technology-edge detection.
