The fabrication and performance of the first bit-level systolic correlator array is described. The application of systolic array concepts at the bit level provides a simple and extremely powerful method for implementing high-performance digital processing functions. The resulting structure is highly regular, facilitating yield enhancement through fault-tolerant redundancy techniques and therefore ideally suited to implementation as a VLSI chip. The CMOS/SOS chip operates at 35 MHz, is fully cascadable and exhibits 64-stage correlation for 1-bit reference and 4-bit data. 7 refs.
