A program generation technique was described for distributed signal processing architectures in the article by G. L. DeMuth, "High Order Notation and Automated Program Generation for Real Time Signal Processing," Proceedings of the IEEE Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing, pp. 683-686, May 1982. The following is a disclosure of run time algorithms which are resident in each distributed processing element, to implement scheduling and address calculation for each of the distributed processing elements, in a coordinated manner with the other distributed processing elements in the network. The automated program generator, described in the above-cited article, builds a load file for initial program load of a signal processor.
