Paper Abstract

In this paper we consider using 'digit serial' processing to build high performance parallel structures, in particular, parallel signal processors. Digit serial arithmetic processors have digit serial data transmission combined with digit serial computation. Three digit serial arithmetic processors are presented and compared with their digit parallel counterparts. We show that by using a digit serial approach we can achieve a higher throughput than with a digit parallel processor, even though the two processors are structurally similar and have components of similar complexity.
