Abstract:

The numerical analyst is not versed in VLSI design the VLSI designer is not versed in algorithmic development. A primary implication of VLSI technology on the numerical analyst is locating the communication interface in order to optimize the talent of the numerical analyst and the VLSI designer. A viable alternative is to automate the algorithmic translation, accepting the inherent inefficiencies, and allow the numerical analyst full control of VLSI implementation. Regardless of the mechanism for producing the final integrated circuit design, the present approach to algorithm development must change to include concurrency in programming and regular flow of data and control. Specifically, the developer must overcome the ingrained notion that processor are expensive interconnection paths are more expensive in time and costs than junctions. Author
