Abstract:

This thesis presents a design and implementation of a model of a multicluster loop interface. This Delay Insertion Loop type of interface is based on the IMS T424 Transputer and the Concurrent Sequential Processes type of programming language OCCAM. The Loop-type of communication systems are described and the Delay Insertion type of interface has been selected as the most appropriate one for high performance real-time applications. The OCCAM programming language, hosted on the VAX 11780 VMS system VAX-Virtual address extension, VMS-Virtual Memory System was used to program the simulated version of the multicluster loop interface. Keywords include Transputer, Occam, Concurrent Processing, Multiprocessing, Multiprocessor, Multitransputer, Multicluster, Real Time System, Loop, and Delay Insertion Loop Interface.
