The SPARC project is a research effort in computer architecture. Work is being performed in a joint effort to develop a processor to meet image and signal processing requirements in the 1980s. Utilizing advanced ECL LSI technology, the SPARC processor will initially serve as an add-on device to off- load computational load from a host of general-purpose computer. The goal of this phase of the program is the installation of SPARC processors in laboratories at both CMU and CDC in the late 1979 -- early 1980 timeframe. The hardware is being developed by CDC, along with system software. CMU is developing user software aids, along with a library of applications programs.
