Petri nets are investigated as one method of modeling speed independent asynchronous circuits. A study of circuit realizations of Petri nets leads to a demonstration of their usefulness in modeling speed independent operation. This usefulness is emphasized by the design of a speed independent processor from modules developed in the investigation of Petri(More)
A processor is described which can achieve highly parallel execution of programs represented in dataflow form. The languake implemented incorporates conditional and iteration mechanisms, and the processor is a step toward a practical data-flow processor for a Fortran-level data-flow language. The processor has a unique architecture which avoids the problems(More)
Several proposals for computer data processing and memory systems that exploit the inherent parallelism in programs expressed in data flow form have been advanced recently. These systems have <underline>packet communication architecture</underline>&#8212;each system consists of many <underline>units</underline> that interact only through the transmission of(More)
