<p>The authors present a novel, very fine grain associative architecture. This architecture maintains both a high degree of flexibility and fine graininess. This is done by reducing each processor to an associative memory cell. Unlike other associative memory processors, this architecture uses a two-dimensional interconnect and a physically compact memory structure. Arithmetic operations are based on the use of a redundant number system. These features provide a high level of performance. This is particularly true for certain two-dimensional problems which can be solved very efficiently on the proposed architecture.</p>
