Abstract

Parallel computing is the only viable, cost-effective approach to meeting the timing constraints of many high performance signal processing applications. The computational and/or I/O requirements of a single application can overwhelm the capabilities of a sequential computer. Applications in array signal processing and image processing perform complex sequences of matrix computations, have streaming data requirements in excess of one Gbits/s, and must execute in 10 ms or less. The operating constraints of these applications mandate the use of parallel computing.
