Paper Abstract

Results are presented of the feasibility study for the GaAs DSP implementation and are compared with previously reported designs. This processor will be incorporated into an insertion module and demonstrates that GaAs DSP replacement modules, reduced to multichip package size, can achieve critical signal processing functions in a typical RF seeker system. Architectural features are offered that effectively make it a high-speed MIMD processor with more than a ten-fold performance advantage over its silicon counterpart. This radar system design provides the compatibility to realize hundreds of megahertz of effective signal bandwidth and precision of performance required.
