  title={MSP Liberator ASIC Design Flow Produces Full Custom Performance Required for Next Generation Military Electronics},
  author={W. Snapp and P. Haug and D. Sunderland and R. Brees and C. Sechen},
Next generation military systems and other national security applications require advanced digital signal processing electronics implemented in highly optimized ASICs with Mission Specific Processing Architectures. But there is a problem that currently blocks these systems from fully exploiting the potential of integrated circuit technology. Aerospace ASICs are typically, of economic necessity, designed differently and significantly suboptimally relative to high volume standard products. The… Expand
