The emerging application of Gallium Arsenide digital integrated circuits to signal processing problems will require the development of architectures quite different from those used for highly parallel silicon VLSI and VHSIC components. Much higher system clock rates will be employed in GaAs based systems than will be common in silicon VLSI, placing much more stress on interchip signal protocols, and on the design of first and second level packaging, i.e., at the chip carrier and logic board levels.
