This is a Ph.D. thesis. This thesis discusses instrumentation architectures for applications in the life sciences, mostly for data acquisition and real-time data processing. Contents include: General introduction, Parallel architectures, Multiprocessor system for a stem quadrant detector, Design of a parallel and pipelined DSP system for fast protein sequence homologies, Fast wire per wire x-ray data acquisition system for time-resolved small angle scattering experiments, A fast position encoding system for a delay line based gas filled area detector, A parallel systolic array ASIC for real time execution of the hough transform, A systolic array architecture for complex motif search applicants, Discussion.
