Title: AN ULTRA-HIGH SPEED RESIDUE NUMBER PROCESSOR FOR SAFT INSPECTION SYSTEM IMAGE ENHANCEMENT
Agency: NRC
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $235,000.00
 

Abstract:

A REAL-TIME DATA PROCESSING ENHANCEMENT TO EXISTING SAFT INSPECTION SYSTEMS IS PROPOSED THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SPECIAL PURPOSE RESIDUE-NUMBER-SYSTEM (RNS) PROCESSOR. BECAUSE OF THE REGULARITY IN THE ARCHITECTURE AND CLOCKING OF RNS ARITHMETIC ELEMENTS, A HIGH DEGREE OF COMPUTATIONAL PARALLISM AND PIPELINING IS POSSIBLE RESULTING IN A CONSIDERABLE INCREASE IN THROUGHPUT AND COMPUTATIONAL RATES OVER CONVENTIONAL BINARY ARITHMETIC METHODS. A DETAILED RNSDATA PROCESSOR DESIGN WILL BE DEVELOPED AND ANALYZED TO DETERMINE ITS FEASIBILITY IN TERMS OF COMPUTATIONAL SPEED, IMAGE ENHANCEMENT, AND IMPACT ON THE SAFT SYSTEM. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO BUILD A WORKING PROTOTYPE DURING PHASES II AND III FOR INCORPORATION INTO A FIELD OPERATIONAL IMAGING SYSTEM.
