The choice of a communication paradigm, or protocol, is central to the design of a largescale multiprocessor system. Unlike traditional multiprocessors, the FLASH machine uses a programmable node controller, called MAGIC, to implement all protocol processing. The architecture of the MAGIC chip allows FLASH to support multiple communication paradigms — in particular, cache-coherent shared memory and high-performance message passing — while minimizing both hardware and software overhead. Each… CONTINUE READING
