Implementation and use of Level 3 BLAS kernels on a Transputer
T800 ring network.
Such paradigms appear naturally suited for innovation in operating systems, transputers
, intelligent networks, non-von Neumann architectures, systolic arrays, and parallel systems.
Therefore, messages can be exchanged between transputers
without slowing down other processors in the system, as is unfortunately often the case in multiprocessor systems, in which all data exchange between microprocessors is via a common bus.
In the space agency's NNETS (Neural Network Environment Transputer
System) 40 transputers
have been linked to attain an extremely high operating speed.
Another one dozen transputers
were in use for conventional sensor data processing, situation assessment, and control output (throttle, brakes, and steering of the car as well as gaze control for the active vision system).
Then, a parallel solution was schematized, starting form an homogeneous multiprocessor architecture based on transputers
These measurements were taken on a Parsytec board composed of transputers
(T800) with one megabyte of memory each, hosted by a Sun.
Sophisticated software was written for the transputers
in the 6210 using the OCCAM |TM~ programming language.
The Computer Science Department has modern, well-equipped laboratory facilities including: SUN SPARC, NeXT, Silicon Graphics 4D, and DEC workstations, a Symbolics LISP machine, transputers
, and an Ethernet Local Area Network.
The closest type of system to iWarp is the transputer
, but iWarp can outperform today's transputers
by a factor of 10.
