We compare implementation of Raw and Internet protocols (TCP, UDP) on a programmable HIPPI host-interface called the Network Interface Unit. The network interface unit connects Pixel-Planes 5, a message-based graphics multicomputer, to a wide area gigabit network called VISTAnet. The BISDN network consists of a SONET cross-connect switch and an ATM switch.(More)
As networks approach gigabit performance, supercom-puter host interfaces are becoming the communication bottleneck. The Network Interface Unit (NIU) is a high-performance host interface for Pixel Planes 5, a custom graphics supercomputer. The design offers both performance and programmability through a balance of ahta-marshaling hardware and an embedded(More)
