Abstract : The Gauss machine is a SlMD systolic array architecture which takes advantage of the Galoisenhanced quadratic residue number system (GEORNS) to form reduced complexity arithmetic elements. The Gauss machine is targeted at frontend signal and image processing applications. With a 2 x 2 array of GEQRNS multiplieraccumulators operating at 10 MHz the Gauss machine can achieve a peak equivalent throughput of 32O million operations per second when performing complex arithmetic. The Gauss machine is designed for a broader, more general class of problems than other RNS based systems which have been constructed: the Gauss machine may be used to accelerate computations which involve or may be expressed as matrixmatrix (level 3), matrixvector (level 2), or vectorvector (level 1) operations. This paper describes the implementation of the Gauss machine and how it may be used to accelerate signal processing operations.
