Algorithms that contain computations that can be executed simultaneously, offer possibilities of exploiting the parallelism present by implementing them on appro priate hardware, such as a multiprocessor system or an application-specific inte grated circuit (ASIC). Many digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms contain in ternal parallelism and are besides meant to be repeated infinitely (or a large number of times). These algorithms, therefore, not only have intra-iteration parallelism (between operations belonging to the same iteration) but inter-iteration parallelism (between operations belonging to different iterations) as well [Par9 1].
