Paper Abstract

A Multiprocessor architecture is developed for imagetoimage algorithms which tunes processing power and efficient data distribution. The architecture is based on the MAXbus ROT video data distribution standard and processing elements containing four NEC Image Pipelined Processors each. A token ring architecture a messagepassing ring and a common bus architecture are analyzed in terms of efficiency and utilization where the latter appears to be most adequate. Special attention is paid to the stale data problem which occurs in iterative neighborhood operations.
