A new configuration is proposed for an optoelectronic network (OEN) using microwave frequency mixing and multiplexing. The mn OEN consists of m optical sources, m-parallel n-stage cascaded optical intensity modulators, and m-photodetectors. The mn OEN matrix is theoretically discussed, and 12, 22 and 33 OENs are analyzed in detail. The 22 OEN, which mixes and multiplexes microwaves, is further investigated and the theoretical prediction derived from OEN equations is experimentally confirmed.
