Abstract:

In creating a heterogeneous parallel processing capability we are really trying to approach three basic problems with current systems 1 Supercomputer and parallel computer hardware architectures vary widely but need to support one or two fairly standard programming languages and programming models. A particularly important issue concerns the short life cycle of individual hardware designs 2 Many algorithms require capabilities beyond the reach of single superconducters but could be approached by several machines working together and 3 Performing a given task requires integration of a system that may contain many components in addition to the super or parallel computer itself. Peripherals from many different manufacturers must be incorporated. KR
