Paper Abstract

Architectural solutions to large signal and data processing problems can now in many cases be implemented in VLSI-complexity silicon integrated circuits in a majority of cases, provided that the economic constraints of design costs, unit costs, and schedule can be resolved. However, for a small subclass of signal processing tasks involving very high input data bandwidths and/or large volume computation, VLSI implementations of parallel architectures are a useful but incomplete solution, or in some cases even an ina dequate one; alternate device technologies, e.g., high speed Gallium Arsenide digital com-ponents, must be considered for very high clock rate processors. This paper explores the tradeoffs between architectures and device technologies and the roles which they can play in very high bandwidth classical signal processing tasks.
