Overview

Application Specific Processors is written for use by engineers who are developing specialized systems (application specific systems). Traditionally, most high performance signal processors have been realized with application specific processors. The explanation is that application specific processors can be tailored to exactly match the (usually very demanding) application requirements. The result is that no 'processing power' is wasted for unnecessary capabilities and maximum performance is achieved. A disadvantage is that such processors have been expensive to design since each is a unique design that is customized to the specific application. In the last decade, computer-aided design systems have been developed to facilitate the development of application specific integrated circuits. The success of such ASIC CAD systems suggests that it should be possible to streamline the process of application specific processor design. Application Specific Processors consists of eight chapters which provide a mixture of techniques and examples that relate to application specific processing. The inclusion of techniques is expected to suggest additional research and to assist those who are faced with the requirement to implement efficient application specific processors. The examples illustrate the application of the concepts and demonstrate the efficiency that can be achieved via application specific processors. The chapters were written by members and former members of the application specific processing group at the University of Texas at Austin. The first five chapters relate to specific arithmetic which often is the key to achieving high performance in application specific processors. The next two chapters focus on signal processing systems, and the final chapter examines the interconnection of possibly disparate elements to create systems.

Provides a mixture of techniques and examples relating to application specific processing. Five chapters cover related arithmetic for areas such as fault tolerance, modeling the power consumption of CMOS, and low power digital multipliers. Two chapters focus on signal processing systems, and a final chapter examines the interconnection of possibly disparate elements to create systems. Examples illustrate the application of concepts and demonstrate the efficiency that can be achieved with application specific processors, and techniques assist those who are faced with implementing application specific processors. For engineers developing specialized systems. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
