Although the dual port IP Lookup (DuPI) SRAM based architecture proposed in  maintains packet input order and supports in-place nonblocking
route updates and a routing table of up to 228 K prefixes (using a single Virtex4), the architecture is only suitable for single-dimension classification tasks.
The MIL-S3580 Layer 2 managed switch provides high-performance, nonblocking
Using Nexus as the communication layer allows Meta-Chaos to implement nonblocking
communication and select the underlying communication protocols (such as the Message Passing Interface, or MPI , and Unix sockets) at run time.
The send operation is defined to be asynchronous (nonblocking
) and ordered (FIFO).
(2) Some authors use the term "nonblocking
" to refer to such implementations.
The requirement initially called for 160 of these various sensors to be connected to a nonblocking
full fan-out switching system and specified that the system must be capable of expanding to at least 256 inputs.
communication may be considered to hide this latency .
The protocol can be either nonblocking
"In addition to incredible scalability," says Ed Roberson, coordinator of network services at the hospital, "The switches were the only nonblocking
, wire-speed switches with quality of service.
Such errors arise whenever the simulator fails to model the precise behavior of the design under study, a task that is becoming increasingly difficult as processors move to memory systems that support features such as prefetching and nonblocking
Other than that, the tasks are considered mutually independent - although nonblocking
communication can often be enforced through the assignment of timing constraints and via copy-in/copy-out operations [Gerber et al.
Alternatives to the use of preemption-safe or scheduler-conscious locks include nonblocking
and wait-free data structures and remote invocation of object methods.
