Abstract
The Next Generation Signal Processor (NGSP) architecture was developed for real-time signal processing applications. A novel symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) architecture is presented which allows the overall system performance to scale linearly with the number of processing elements constituting the system. The architecture provides coherent caching of shared control memory on all processing elements, and a collision-free memory access scheme for common shared data memory.
