Title: Overview of the DART project

Abstract

DART (DSP Arrary for Reconfigurable Tasks) is a parallel architecture of two high-performance SDP (digital signal processing) chips with the flexibility to handle a wide range of real-time applications. Each of the 32-bit floating-point DSP processes in DART is programmable in a high-level languate ( C'' or Ada). We have added extensions to the real-time operating system used by DART in order to support parallel processor. The combination of high-level language programmability, a real-time operating system, and parallel processing support significantly reduces the development cost of application software for signal processing and control applications. We have demonstrated this capability by using DART to reconstruct images in the prototype VIP (Video Imaging Projectile) groundstation.
