Abstract : This paper suggests that the critical issues pertaining to the very large scale integration of signal processor implementation are properly cast within the structure of the several design phases from concept to demonstration and test. It is further suggested, using a Matrix Functional Processor consisting of an array of LSI devices, that there are at least four critical issues supporting the contention that the signal processing community could benefit from revisions in educational programs, from improvements in design aids with extended data-bases, and from revisions in the traditional design processes. It concludes with an appeal for greater integration of the physical aspects extending and limiting signal processor performance into the conceptualization and comparative analysis of designs intended for implementation.
