We have designed the Standard Map Machine(SMM) as an answer to the intensive computational requirements involved in the study of chaotic behavior in nonlinear systems. The high-speed and high-precision performance of this computer is due to its simple architecture specialized to the numerical computations required of nonlinear systems. In this report, we discuss the design and implementation of this special-purpose machine.
