Modern applications increasingly require the computation of DSP workloads comprised of a variety of numerically-intensive DSP tasks. These workloads are found in communication, multime-dia, embedded, and wireless applications, and often require very high levels of computation and high energy efficiency. The Asynchronous Array of Simple Processors (AsAP)(More)
A software based IEEE 802.11a digital baseband transmitter has been implemented on a highly parallel single-chip DSP. The processing platform is a programmable and reconfigurable asynchronous array of simple processors (AsAP) that is well matched to complex system workloads such as 802.11a. The transmitter is the first fully-compliant 802.11a software(More)
This paper presents the architecture of an asynchronous array of simple processors (AsAP), and evaluates its key architectural features as well as its performance and energy efficiency. The AsAP processor calculates DSP applications with high energy-efficiency, is capable of high-performance, is easily scalable, and is well-suited to future fabrication(More)
