Title (EN) DATA PROCESSING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE TRAITEMENT DES DONNEES
Abstract:
(EN) A data processing apparatus operates on data in different formats to improve computational efficiency in a complex system. The apparatus includes a backplane (2) for data signals in different formats such as electrical and optical formats, adaptive filters (4) that receive data signals in the different formats from the backplane, and processors (5) to receive data derived from the backplane in the different formats, at least one of the processors being operable to process data from one of the filters and being responsive to the outcome of data filtering performed by at least one other of the filters to adapt the processing that is carried out. A code-breaking process is given as an example.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de traitement des données qui agit sur des données de formats différents afin d'améliorer l'efficacité computationnelle dans un système complexe. L'appareil de l'invention comprend une face arrière (2) destinée à des signaux de données de formats différents tels que les formats électriques et optiques, des filtres adaptatifs (4) qui reçoivent les signaux de données de formats différents depuis la face arrière, et des processeurs (5) qui reçoivent les données de différents formats en provenance de la face arrière, au moins un des processeurs pouvant traiter les données provenant de l'un des filtres et étant sensible au résultat du filtrage de données effectué par au moins un autre filtre pour adapter le traitement effectué. Un processus d'analyse cryptographique est décrit à titre d'exemple.
