24 December 1980 Signal Processing Aspects Of The S-1 Multiprocessor Project
Author Affiliations +
The S-1 family of uni-and multiprocessors is an extremely high performance but relatively inexpen-sive general purpose set of digital processing systems being developed for the most demanding National security applications. A typical S-1 system consists of from one to sixteen S-1 uniprocessors sharing up to 4 gigawords of uniformly addressed main memory. Each uniprocessor of the current (Mark IIA) generation has computational power roughly equivalent to that of a CRAY-1. In this paper, we give a general description of the S-1 Mark IIA uniprocessor and a somewhat more extensive discussion of its signal processing hardware and hardware-executed algorithms. Our focus is a discussion of the felicitous properties of the uniprocessor components that make the S-1 system a powerful general purpose digital signal processor.
