Abstract : The key to meeting the extremely high throughput requirements of future military signal and image processing systems is parallelism in algorithms and hardware. This paper will describe the implementation of a core set of algorithms on one possible hardware implementation, designed to achieve high speed and efficient parallelism. This approach and design procedure, while using currently available integrated circuit building blocks, is similar to how this type of processor will be developed in the future using VLSI. Keywords: Systolic array, RAM, Algorithms, and Boundary processors.
