ABSTRACT
<p>An overview is provided of existing gallium arsenide microprocessors and related digital designs. The architectures described cover a wide range of applications and were chosen on the basis of their unique design and technology characteristics. The issues considered relate to the processor-design level with some register-transfer-level components covered for the sake of completeness. The discussion covers general-application microprocessors including: RCA 8-bit microprocessor; CDC 32-bit microprocessor; McDonnell Douglas 32-bit microprocessor; and RCA 32-bit microprocessor microprocessors of symbolic applications including: Carnegie Mellon's RISCF; and GAELIC from Magnavox, systolic array processors, and alternative approaches to processor design.</p>
