    The architecture and design of a high-performance general-purpose microprogrammable sequential controller are presented. Conventional logic controllers are limited by speed, memory requirements or flexibility and programming ease. The requirements of a basic sequential controller are identified, and a memory segmentation technique is proposed for efficient data structuring. A parallel-architecture... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a new design methodology for a class of next-generation computers. Our proposal, the event-driven computer (EDC), is primarily a data-driven heterogeneous system which is supplemented with control-driven activities; such a combined approach is aimed at extracting the advantages of both the `pure¿ data-driven and control-driven systems while alleviating their shortcomings. Com... View full abstract»

    The system described here is a real-time edge detector for use in image processing. The edge-detection algorithm is a 2 ¿¿ 2 Roberts product, thresholded with a function of the local average brightness. The hardware is designed to work at 10 MHz pixel rate, and will accommodate images of 512 ¿¿ 512 pixels at 25 frames/s with noninterlaced video, or of up to 512 ¿¿ 290 pixels with interlaced scanni...

    An evaluation of the impact of VLSI on manufacturing, design techniques and design methods of electronic digital systems is presented. Also, possible future trends resulting from the impact of VLSI are pointed out. A comparison with the pre-VLSI state-of-the-art technology is used. View full abstract»
