A computer architecture for concurrent computing is proposed that has the shared memory aspect of tightly coupled multiprocessor systems and also the connection simplicity associated with message-connected, loosely coupled multicomputer systems. A large address space is dynamically partitioned into contiguous segments that can be accessed by a single processor. The partitioning is accomplished by switching the system buses, using semiconductor switches. The completion of a concurrent process is… CONTINUE READING
