Abstract:

A design study has been carried out for a general-purpose signal processing computer which incorporates arithmetic parallelism in a microprocessor structure. The study indicates that the processor Advanced Signal Processor, ASP would be faster, smaller, simpler, and less costly than its predecessor, the Fast Digital Processor FDP. In addition, the ASP would have a more sophisticated in-out system than the FDP. These gains are achievable partially because of newly available fast hardware and partially due to the architecture of the ASP.
