Abstract: The authors present a migrating data-driven multiprocessor architecture suited for digital signal processing. Three types of basic operations are defined; this allows a simplified and efficient representation of algorithm execution in terms of Petri nets. Data-flow primitives, packets and operators, allow the implementation of the algorithm. Operand packets allow migration of operation computing from one processor to the neighbouring ones. The architecture of the data driven processor is examined in its basic blocks and an example of operation migration control strategy is shown.
Keywords: migrating data driven architecture; signal processing; operation migration; control strategy; data-flow primitives.
