IJHPSA proposes and fosters discussion on all aspects of the design and implementation of high-performance architectures, which are centred around the concept of parallel processing. The journal will cover all types of advanced architectures ranging from pipelined structures, array processors and multiprocessor systems. Dedicated high-performance architectures and systems, as well as hardware and software design methods and tools, will also fall within the scope of IJHPSA.


 Topics covered include

  • Pipelining
  • Array processors
  • Multiprocessor systems
  • RISC architectures
  • Data flow systems
  • VLSI architectures, systems and applications
  • Performance evaluation and new trends
  • Multimedia systems and applications
  • Circuits and systems for data communications
  • Systems on a chip
  • Network on a chip
  • Analog circuit design
  • Modelling and simulation
  • CAD tools and design methodologies
  • Test and validation

More on this journal...

IJHPSA provides a lively forum for the communications of original research. It acts as a scientific and professional journal to timely disseminate original research work on advanced systems architecture, which is at the heart of high-performance and cost-effective systems.


The audience for IJHPSA consists of researchers, academics, graduate students, professionals and system engineers working and interested in high-performance systems and their underlying advanced architectures.


IJHPSA publishes original peer-reviewed papers, which include research papers, review papers, case studies, book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics on advanced systems architecture will occasionally be published.
