The D825 Modular Data Processing System is the result of a Burroughs study, initiated several years ago, of the data processing requirements for command and control systems. The D825 has been developed for operation in the military environment. The initial system,. constructed for the Naval Research Laboratory with the designation AN/GYK-3(V), has been completed and tested. This paper reviews the design criteria analysis and design rationale that led to the system structure of the D825. The… Expand
The D825 automatic operating and scheduling program
This paper concerns a general executive program for the Burroughs D825 Modular Data Processing System. The D825 is a large-scale, multicomputer, expansible, general-purpose, digital system employingExpand

TLDR
This discussion has attempted to show that the military doctrine of centralized command and decentralized execution is, to a large extent, becoming more amenable to mechanization, viz., by the notion of the distributed data processor, which is for all practical purposes an interconnected set of computers that can share a common problem load.

The external access network of a modular computer system
A modular time-sharing computer system, called PRIME, is currently under development at the University of California, Berkeley. Basically, PRIME consists of sets of modules such as processors,Expand

TLDR
This paper discusses the development and current state of the art in parallel processing and describes a natural extension of the evolutionary approaches that is a general-purpose approach that is applicable to all types of data processing and computer configuration. Expand
Time shared computers
TLDR
The present general computational systems are an extension of special, shared, multiprogrammed systems centered around special applications, and Time Sharing is another technique which makes the computer a more general tool. Expand

TLDR
On the basis of the simplicity of the fetch-execute cycle, there is hope that this architecture may well be the best way to build minicomputers and large computers using a cellular array of microprocessors. Expand
Modular crossbar switch for large-scale multiprocessor systems: structure and implementation
This paper describes the architecture of an innovative modular crossbar switch for large-scale multiprocessor systems; its modular design principle is given a particularly thorough treatment. TheExpand
Intercommunication of processors and memory

  • AFIPS '67 (Fall)
  • 1967
TLDR
Many computer systems include one or more high transfer rate secondary storage devices in addition to numerous input-output (I/O) devices, which means that the problem of providing these processors with adequate data transfer capability becomes formidable. Expand
A case study in programming for parallel-processors
TLDR
An affirmative partial answer is provided to the question of whether it is possible to program parallel-processor computing systems to efficiently decrease execution time for useful problems and it is shown that, with proper programming, solution time when NP processors are applied approaches 1/NP times the solution time for a single processor, while improper programming can actually lead to an increase of solution time with the number of processors.

A computer system designer's view of large scale integration
TLDR
This paper will attempt to cast a realistic light on the promises and possibilities of mainframe LSI and investigate the special characteristics of LSI in the design of general-purpose computers. Expand
