Cost-effective Processor Design with an Application to Fast Fourier Transform Computers
Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University., 1973 - Algorithms - 334 pages
A cost-effective processor design is one that attains a high ratio of processing performance to processor component cost. This research investigates the circuit design of a processor or processing subsystems for costeffective implementation of a particular computation algorithm. The logic designs considered in this work use circuit components for which the delay and cost of functional building blocks or gates are known. A logic design technique is described that permits processing performance and cost comparisons among alternative computation algorithms and circuit technologies. It also provides a basis for contrasting alternative processor architectures, including both pipelined and parallel computing structures. (Modified author abstract).
