Abstract
This is the second in a series of three papers which present the Next Generaiton Signal Processor (NGSP). The first article entitled, NGSP - A Novel Parallel Signal Processing Architecture presents the overall system architecture of the NGSP. This, the second article, presents the experimental development models (XDMs) produced using the NGSP architecture. The third article entitled, NGSP - Integrated Programming Environment (IPE) discusses the software development efforts undertaken to allow execution of signal processing applications using the NGSP XDM systems. The XDM systems were developed in order to demonstrate that the NGSP architecture's performance could scale linearly when used in conjunction with real time signal processing applications. The XDMs developed demonstrated linear scaling to within 3% for sustained performance levels between 400 MFLOPs to 3.2 GFLOPs.
