Abstract : Finite field arithmetic may be efficiently applied for implementing signal processing architectures. The fundamental theoretical work in this area was done by Matluk and Gill. This report presents several new approaches for incorporating error-correcting codes with signal processing operations yielding fault tolerant systems. Fault tolerant levels can be distributed throughout the system's architecture. Such architectures will become necessary when very sophisticated and dense systems are implemented with Very Large Scale Integration.
