Abstract:

The processing requirements for three preprocessing applications for a microprocessor are determined. The three applications examined are Kalman filtering, radar beamsteering, and the Global Positioning System user equipment computer. The estimated processor requirements include throughput, memory capacity, inputoutput rates, special instructions and hardware. The device technologies TTL, ECL, IIL, and MOS are examined to determine electrical and radiation performance. The available microprocessors are surveyed and a microprocessor architecture suitable for the possible applications is recommended.
