Abstract : This report describes the second in a series of application problems which are intended to measure the performance of a process for rapid prototyping of embedded digital signal processors. The rapid prototyping process is being developed for the ARPA/Tri-Services Rapid Prototyping of Application Specific Signal Processors (RASSP) program. The first application problem was to develop a virtual prototype for a real time digital signal processor capable of forming images from high resolution synthetic aperture radar data. The second problem, described in this document, is to implement the virtual prototype in physical hardware and compare performance with that predicted by the virtual prototype. Details of the application are provided along with design constraints and optimization requirements for the processor. The report also describes product and process metrics which are to be collected to derive measures of process and product performance. The application problem and associated performance metrics comprise what is termed a Benchmark Technical Description.
