Abstract

It is argued that recasting traditional signal-processor architectures at the memory-layout, logic-design, arithmetic-implementation, and system-architecture levels will permit fuller use of GaAs technology. In this context, the authors expand upon the problem of designing processor systems in GaAs through the discussion of issues that, until recently, have been of particular concern to the computer fabricator. They discuss signal processing applications requiring digital GaAs; interdependence of algorithms, architectures, and device technologies; memories; architectural issues; intraprocessor communication problems; design issues; built-in self-test for high-speed ICs; and packaging and interconnection of high-frequency digital ICs.
