Abstract : The architectural features, instruction set and device technology of a microprocessor which can meet the requirements of higher speed avionics applications are defined in this report. The results of processing requirements studies for a modular digital scan converter and a synthetic aperture ground map radar are reported. Microprocessor design tradeoffs for high speed operation are presented and a design is chosen. The results of partitioning this design onto custom CMOS/SOS and low power Schottky TTL chips are presented.
