Abstract:

The report describes the design of an array-structured cellular computer specially organized to efficiently implement matrix-oriented algorithms. In addition, this computer has general-purpose programmability and is capable of fault-tolerant operation three fault-tolerant organizations are prsented. The execution speed of this computer is a factor of N squared where N is the dimension of the array or more faster than a sequential computer with the same clock period. This computer is useful in real-time applications where high-speed operation is required, but where flexibility and size requirements prevent the use of special-purpose or high-speed general-purpose computers, e.g., sample data control systems, vehicle navagation, phased radar control computations and sonar receiving array computations.
