The funds provided by grant number AFOSR-83-0315 were combined with matching funds provided by the University of Texas to create a hardware and software development environment for parallel computer systems. The hardware development environment includes a chip and printed circuit board design and simulation capability and a high performance digital logic analyzer. The software development environment is a software-rich superminicomputer and a set of low-power graphics workstations. The total configuration includes a Digital Equipment Corporation VAX 11750 computer system including the VMS operating system and a complement of other software, a Valid Logic computer-aided-design workstation including the Scald design system, a Tektronix DAS9129 high performance digital logic analyzer and a set of Apple Macintosh microcomputers to be used for terminals and as low-powered workstations. The fabrication of and the selections for the printed circuit boards for the four-processor nine-memory configuration of the Texas Reconfigurable Array Computer TRAC were also funded from this grant. There was one change between the equipment complement proposed and that actually purchased. The functions of the hardware documentation system specified in the proposal were subsumed in the capabilities of the Valid Logic design system purchased with matching funds from the University of Texas.
