Paper Abstract

GaAs integrated circuit technology is being applied to improve the performance and functionality of the Digital Video Mapping System. A 400 MFLOP 32 bit floating point processor will be used to accelerate data and graphics processing algorithms. The GaAs processor will contain 4 circuit types interconnected using a thin film multilayer packaging technology. The processor clock rate is 200 MHz and the I/Os are at CMOS levels operating at less than 50MHz.
