Title: SCALABLE MULTI-PROCESSOR SYSTEM FOR REAL TIME APPLICATIONS IN COMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING
Abstract:
The invention relates to an arrangement for processing data in accordance with real time requirements which can be flexibly adapted to the modified tasks. According to the invention, a processor (MP) is interactively connected to each of the following by a local bus (LB): a first access part of a receive memory (RMDP) with dual access, a first access part of a transmit memory (TMDP) with dual access and a peripheral bus (PB). A support device (SU) is connected to the second access part of the receive memory, to the second access part of the transmit memory, to the local bus, to a receive unit (RI) and to a transmission unit (TI). The local bus and the support device are connected by the peripheral bus to a data processing device (HOST) with an external memory. The inventive arrangement has a scalable processor base system that supports the processor in data management and processing and that is optimised for connection-oriented data streams, in order to increase capacity. This ensures the excellent programmability of real time-critical functions in telecommunications technology.
