A description is given of the CLIP7 image-processing chip. The device is implemented as a custom designed integrated circuit and contains a single processing element for use in arrays of processors. The chip uses 16-bit internal and 8-bit external data buses and divides crudely into two major sections: data processing and data input/output. The first structure to be assembled using these processors is a 256-element linear array, each element incorporating two of the CLIP7 processors. This system, known as CLIP7A, is used both to study the application of partial local autonomy techniques to image processing and also as a fast and convenient system for the emulation of other architectures. CLIP7A software and hardware are also described
