Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) technology offers the potential of implementing complex algorithms directly in hardware [Mead and Conway 79). This paper (i) gives examples of algorithms that we believe are suitable for VLSI implementation, (ii) provides a taxonomy for algorithms based on their communication structures, and (iii) discusses some of the insights that are beginning to emerge from our efforts in designing algorithms for VLSI systems.
