Abstract : Driven by steep increase in the complexity of computations, processing speed requirements and the volume of data handled in various signal processing applications, modern signal processing research and development is undergoing a major revolution. On the other hand, the availability of low cost, high density, fast-speed VLSI devices has timely opened a new avenue for implementing these increasingly sophisticated algorithms and systems. Therefore, the future trend of VLSI signal processing research will require very close interactions between different disciplines in VLSI, computer engineering, and signal processing. This paper addresses three fundamental issues: (1) impact of VLSI on signal processing methods, (2) impact of VLSI on array processors for signal processing, (3) integrated design of signal processing systems. The purpose is to provide a cross-disciplinary understanding of the modern signal processing techniques, parallel array processors, and VLSI technology potentials and constraints. (Author)
