Two-dimensional arrays of microprocessors are considered for the implementation of image processors that are formulated according to a certain state-space model. The microprocessors are totally synchronized?operating with the same clock and executing the same instructions, communicating with each other through local memory units. This allows the use of such an array as a pipeline for the processing of successive images or sections of one image, to achieve a relatively fast effective speed.
