DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"Suhas Patil describes why, despite the impressive increase in PC CPU power, we still need chips that perform peripheral processing functions such as graphics, communications and other I/O tasks. With the demands of real-time response, rapid feature expansion, and the need to differentiate product in a competitive market, the power requirement of the peripherals easily exceeds that of the CPU. Functional parallelism has emerged as a practical way to provide this additional power. Patil shows how functional parallelism has evolved and will become even more critical as PCs incorporate high-speed wireline and wireless communications, audio/video capability, and voice/handwriting recognition."
