This paper proposes new architecture LSIs based on wave-parallel computing to provide an essential solution to the interconnection problems in massively parallel processing. The basic concept is ferquency multiplexing of digital information, which enables us to utilize the parallelism of electrical (or optical) waves for parallel processing. This wave-parallel computing concept is capable of performing several independent binary funtions in parallel with a single module. In this paper, we discuss the design of wave-parallel image processing LSI to demonstrate the feasibility of reducing the number of interconnections among modules.
