    Abstract

    The discrete Fourier Transform plays an important role in analysis, design and the implementation of digital signal processing algorithms and systems. Currently, there are many existing efficient algorithms for computing the discrete Fourier transform which in time with advances in the VLSI technology has benefited many researchers. In this paper we discuss the implementation of a prototype FFT chip based on the proposed Digit Slicing Architecture [1]. The paper begins with a brief discussion of the digit slicing technique. Discussion on the basic building blocks of the Digit Slicing FFT, implementation of a prototype Digit Slicing FFT on a VLSI CAD package environment (CIRCAD II) then follows. The paper is concluded by a brief discussion on the speed of conversion, flexibility and practicability of the design compared to a general DSP processor.
