The purpose of the Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) Remotely Reconfigurable DSP Element is to use VLIW as a design process and to design hardware components of a reconfigurable DSP Element and ascertaining the overall length of the Very Long Instruction Word. This project is focused solely on hardware components being designed by hand with regards to certain specifications deemed by General Dynamics Mission Systems, and using the designs, finding the overall length of the VLIW for use in future work. To design each of the elements, General Dynamics had specified several requirements. Each element was then designed individually according to the requirements. After the initial design, each was sent back for a design review from General Dynamics, and after revision, all parts were linked together for an overall calculation on the length of the VLIW. VLIW Reconfigurable DSP Elements is not a new concept, but has yet to have a proof of concept published. Future work includes a proof of concept with software (done by the ASU Capstone team), then future development by General Dynamics. Should they choose to continue with this project, they will continue testing on FPGA boards, and perhaps future development into an ASIC. Overall the purpose of General Dynamics for proposing this project is for deep space payloads, for which this project has the most applications.
