Abstract : During the past quarter we have begun testing our single-processor ICs which we received from MOSIS. The chip provides for 11-bit input and output data with 16-bit internal data and 12-bit coefficients (stored in on-chip memory). The chip also has an 8-bit microprocessor bus interface for loading programs and coefficients. The IC contains 25,000 transistors and occupies an area of 14.8 sq. mm (3.7 mm by 4.0 mm including pads) in 1.2-micron CMOS technology. A block diagram of the chip is shown. Initial testing shows that the chip is fully functional. We are in the process of testing the performance and power dissipation of the chip and characterizing the input and output timing. From simulations we expect the chip to operate at 50 MHz
