Abstract:

The main question under study is how wide the corridor width should be for the switch lattice of the Configurable, Highly Parallel CHiP computer. The CHiP computer family is introduced and its use for parallel algorithm composition is motivated. It is argued on the basis asymptotic analysis that a constant corridor width is preferred even though such lattices cannot make full use of the processor elements for most complex interconnection patterns, e.g., universal interconnection structures like the cube connected cycles and shuffle exchange, and for certain simple ones, e.g., certain planar graphs.
