In this paper, a methodology for the automatic design of the optimal systolic arrays is proposed. Algorithm transformation is the main mathematical tool on which this methodology is based. Also, technique for partitioning algorithm into systolic arrays is presented. Algorithm partitioning is essential when the size of the computational problem is larger than the size of the array. This study results in (a) reduction of the design time of systolic arrays for given algorithms, (b) CRT display of the structures of systolic arrays, and (c) automatic designing of the optimal systolic array by the criteria such as the number of processing elements, bands, and communication paths. The procedure for these results was programmed using HP BASIC language on HP-9836 computer.
