This paper explores the suitability of the Chandy-Misra algorithm for digital logic simulation. We use four realistic circuits as benchmarks for our analysis, with one of them being the vector-unit controller for the Titan supercomputer from Ardent. Our results show that the average number of logic elements available for concurrent execution ranges from 10 to 111 for the four circuits, with an overall average of 68. Although this is twice as much parallelism as that obtained by traditional… CONTINUE READING
