Paper Abstract

Many aerospace/defense sensing and dual-use applications require high-performance computing, extensive high-bandwidth interconnect and realtime deterministic operation. This paper will describe the architecture of a scalable multicomputer that includes DSP and RISC processors. A single chassis implementation is capable of delivering in excess of 10 GFLOPS of DSP processing power with 2 Gbytes/s of realtime sensor I/O. A software approach to implementing parallel algorithms called the Parallel Application System (PAS) is also presented. An example of applying PAS to a DSP application is shown.
