In this paper, the authors describe a data processing architecture where events and time are in focus. This differs from traditional von Neumann and data flow architectures. New instruction codes are defined and special circuitry is introduced to express and execute event and time operations. This results in reconfigurable software controlled functionality together with real-time performance comparable to dedicated VLSI solutions. The architecture is demonstrated in a real-time radar jammer application. The architecture is promising also for applications as routers and network processors.
