A taxonomy for computer architectures

  title={A taxonomy for computer architectures},
  author={David B. Skillicorn},
A taxonomy is presented that extends M.J. Flynn's (IEEE Trans.Comput., vol. C-21, no.9, p.948-60, Sept. 1972), especially in the multiprocessor category. It is a two-level hierarchy in which the upper level classifies architectures based on the number of processors for data and for instructions and the interconnections between them. A lower level can be used to distinguish variants even more precisely; it is based on a state-machine view of processors. The author suggests why taxonomies are… CONTINUE READING
