What should the architecture of each node in a general purpose, massively parallel architecture (MPA) be? We frame the question in concrete terms by describing two fundamental problems that must be solved well in any general purpose MPA. From this, we systematically develop the required logical organization of an MPA node, and present some details of *T (pronounced Start, a concrete architecture designed to these requirements. *T is a direct descendant of dynamic dataflow architectures, and… CONTINUE READING
