Systolic VLSI chip for implementing orthogonal transforms, A
This paper describes the design of a systolic VLSI chip for the implementation of signal processing algorithms that may be decomposed into a product of simple real rotations. These include orthogonal transformations. Applications of this chip include projections, discrete Fourier and cosine transforms, and geometrical transformations. Large transforms may be computed by "tiling" together many chips for increased throughput. A CMOS VLSI chip containing 138 000 transistors in a 5x3 array of rotators has been designed, fabricated, and tested. The chip has a 32-MHz clock and performs real rotations ...
