A systolic clock generator has been designed and built with 320 identical computing elements on a single VLSI chip which can provide a considerable increase in the rate at which an accumulator may be used to produce a variable frequency clock. A single Arithmetic Frequency Synthesizer (AFS) chip (with appropriate external circuitry), having the equivalent of sixteen accumulators, can provide a programmable clock at frequencies sixteen times greater than that obtainable with a single accumulator. By using up to four AFS chips in parallel, a 64 times improvement of the system output clock frequency may be obtained.
