A processing element in the Modular Missile Borne Computer (MMBC) system consists of a number of hardware modules. The central elements are a general processing element, consisting of a microcontroller and arithmetic logic unit, four 16K local memory modules, and an input/output controller interface unit. These modules are interconnected by three local buses. In addition, there are pulse match processor, sensor data interface, and multiple data stream modules that can be included in the processing element to achieve special purpose processors. These modules have been designed so that they can be connected to form the different processors without any changes to the modules. In particular, a uniprocessor, a single-instruction multiple-data stream processor, a special correlation processor, etc. , can be formed easily with these modules.
