This paper provides a summary of the design features of a microprogram controlled high speed signal processor referred to as an analyzer unit (AU). It provides an overview of the interrelationship between processing requirements, a language structure in which these requirements can be efficiently programmed, and an AU design that can efficiently execute the processing requirements. Particular emphasis is placed on the microprogram structure of the system computational unit, the Arithmetic Processor.
Computer architecture, digital signal processing, fast Fourier transform, microprogram, parallel processing, pipeline processing.
