A Parallel Hardware Processing Approach to Increase System Throughput 872500

The latest generation of integrated circuit MIL-STD-1750A microprocessors lack sufficient speed for a number of system applications for which the SCI Technology, Inc. Data Acquisition and Control System could be applied. The classic co-processor and bus interface techniques do not provide an efficient approach to increasing throughput in these applications. However, the small size and low power of the latest 1750A microprocessors combined with the high density of memories now available and the integration of complex logic into a gate array, can reduce to a small single board, a processor of mini-computer capability. A number of these processors in a single system operating in parallel can produce a powerful computer that can be fully radiation hardened for space applications.
