Abstract : In March 1981 the author participated in a DoD Special Technical Area Review on Signal Processing. Beam forming in phased array antennas and sonar, digital spectral analysis for electronic warfare, and target classification were cited as the major needs pushing the device technology to ever higher throughput rates. The need for these higher throughput rates is one of the major drivers for the VHSIC Program. The question might be posed is whether there are other applications of signal processing, i.e., non-defense applications that can provide a basis for cooperation among the identified VLSI communities of interest. The answer to this question requires a brief examination of the VLSI-signal processing relationship.
