Abstract : This report summarizes a portion of the research accomplished under MITRE MOIE 7150, entitled 'Parallel Signal Processing.' The work performed for this specific task concentrated on developing and presenting useful measures of performance for real-time parallel digital signal processor systems. Using the Common Signal Processor (CSP) as a testbed for the investigation, a three level method of measurement was followed. The results were used to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the CSP in processing selected applications and to provide insight into its general capability. A discussion of issues related to the process of benchmarking in general and lessons learned is also included
