Abstract : Fairchild ARDL, under contract with General Dynamics/Fort Worth, is developing a high performance MIL-STD-1750A microprocessr chip set for use in embedded computer applications in U.S. Air Force avionic systems. This paper describes the development program, the design methodology and the process technology. Fairchild MIL-STD-1750A Microprocessor chip set is centered around the F9450A a 20-MHz 64 pin microprocessor with 200ns cycle time that implements all 1750A instructions including floating point. Two support devices under development are the F9451, a 1750A Memory Management Unit, and the F9452, a 1750A Block Protect RAM device. In addition to the microprocessor chip set, Fairchild is developing an Engineering Test and Evaluation Equipment based on the FS-1 Microprocessor Development ystem. The paper discusses current trends in processing technologies and their effects on system performance. (Author)
