We describe a technique for multiplexed imaging that is based on the concept of mapping scene features to unique temporal codes, and using smart digital pixels to efficiently decode at the focal-plane. We use this technique to demonstrate multiplexed multispectral imaging using actively encoded LEDs, and multiplexed hyperspectral imaging using a digital micromiror spatial light modulator. Both experiments utilize a computational imaging array comprised of a 32x32 array of digital pixels with the capability of acquiring eight concurrent measurements that can be modulated with a time-varying duo-binary signal (+1,-1,0) at MHz rates. This results in eight decoded images per frame at a maximum frame rate of 1600 frames per second. The total frame rate of the imaging system depends on the number of encoded features and the number of decoding channels within the digital pixel. We explore these trades as well as discuss limitations and areas for future improvement.
