Problems associated with performing computation tasks in single-user microprocessor environments are discussed. Data flow methods are investigated as a means of applying multiprocessors to this environment. An event driven simulation of a variable architecture data flow processor is developed, using UCSD Pascal TM. A trial data flow multiprocessor using 8080 based microprocessors is developed and tested. Using the simulator and information gathered from the trial multiprocessor, several situations typical to single user systems were tested. Maximal levels of parallel processing are presented for a variety of situations. Author
