Abstract : This document reports the research activities and results for the period October 1 1981 - October 15 1982 under the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA) Submicron Systems Architecture Project. The central theme of this research is the architecture and design of VLSI (Very Large Scale Integrated) systems appropriate to a microcircuit technology scaled to submicron feature sizes, and includes related efforts in concurrent computation and design tools. The submicron systems architecture project is a carefully integrated research effort, in which theory is closely tied to experiments in VLSI architecture and design. The various aspects of the research tend to support each other. To the extent that they can be separated, the several research areas can be listed as follows: Architectures that can exploit the capabilities of VLSI technology; Concurrent algorithms for important and demanding computations; Theory of Concurrent computation applied to the representation of algorithms and switching systems; Design disciplines that manage the complexity of VLSI systems; and Design tools that check and enforce these disciplines.
