Re: Transputer


I certainly agree with this idea. Prof. May suggested some space be given to memory (cache-like, I suppose, just as on the original Transputer). I suggest in addition a lot more links and event lines, plus analog/digital data lines - say 16 links, 16 events, 64 A or D. (Or am I thinking too small?) Each could have a dedicated Transputer on the "edge" in the spirit of Prof. May's preferred design (in our big priorities discussion last Sep-Oct). Even if only 2000 of the Transputers are left, there should be plenty of edge (45 x 45 = 2025 and that's 176 on the edge if a square array).

That's the sort of party I'd like to be involved with!
