Abstract:

In 1984, Inmos introduced the transputer. The transputer is a microprocessor that is designed to operate in parallel with other transputers in the same system. Most aspects of the transputer were designed with this fact in mind. As a result, inter-processor and inter-process communication is a very important part of the design of the transputer. These parallel processing communications abilities can be very valuable to the Army in the area of chemical detection and its subsequent signal processing needs. Transputer, Parallel computing.
