Paper Abstract

STRUCTFLOW is an approach to efficient and flexible processing of structured and continuous Data. It combines easy programming and efficient exploitation of prallelity of the data flow computers with flow principles of pipelines and systolic arrays. This leads to a novel static data flow architecture, that does not nead associative mechanisms and needs no lokal flow control. The presented system is pricipially able to process arbitrarily extended streams of data with an unlimited number of processors working in parallel. It is possible to achieve nearly deterministic behaviour and synchrony of data streams, which is not jet to be seen in data flow processing. This paper presents the architecture and instruction set of the processor and discusses the features of this system in the light of signal processing.
