Fast Data Sort Based on Searching Networks with Ring Pipeline
Keywords:Binary search networks, ring pipeline, block-based merge, communication-time circuits, system-on-chip
The paper suggests a technique for fast data sort based on a specially organized binary searching network with the following new distinctive features: 1) data sort is done within the time of data acquisition through a serial interface; 2) a new type of pipeline, which we call ring pipeline, is created 3) the delay for receiving each data item is minimized thanks to the novel ring pipeline; 4) sorted data can be transmitted almost immediately after receiving the last input item; 5) several data sets may be sorted by the same network at the same acquisition time. It is proved theoretically that the network is very fast. It was modelled and evaluated in software and the basic components were synthesized and implemented in hardware. The results have shown a significant speed-up comparing to the best known alternatives.
