Abstract : The ATOMIC project utilizers inexpensive fine-grain multicomputer components to create a multi-gigabit per second local area network. This is a unique approach that leverages recent DARPA-supported research at Caltech by Professor Charles Seitz and his students. That research has already produced dense and extremely fast Mosaic single-chip multicomputer nodes. ATOMIC is a unique example of network development that grows upwards from multicomputer machine networking into the domain of a LAN. The principal concerns for this quarter were the continued integration of the new SPARCstation ATOMIC SBus card, modification of the Address Consultant to recognize S Bus hosts, and testing of the 3x3 ATOMIC mesh.
