Abstract:

This is Part 1 of a document which describes a Programmable Algorithm Machine PAM. The proposed architecture includes multiple processing elements, spearate instruction and operand memories, instruction pipelining, and extensibility. The PAM can be programmed in the PAM High-Level Language PHIL or in the PAM Assembly Language PAL. PHIL is an algorithmic programming language PAL is based upon postfix assignment statements. A single parameterized compilerassembler translates PHIL programs into PAL and maps PAL programs on to the PAM. A single parameterized simulation models the PAM family. Suggested applications for the PAM are described in Part 2 Applications of this document. Author
