PARALLEL MEMORY SYSTEM FOR A PARTITIONABLE SIMD/MIMD MACHINE.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • PASM is a large-scale partitionable SIMD/MIMD multimicroprocessor system being designed for image processing tasks. To improve machine throughput, a memory management system employing parallel secondary storage devices and double-buffered primary memories has been devised. The memory system is an intelligent one, using communicating microprocessors which are dedicated to handling data request and file management. The memory system bus structure is organized to exploit much parallelism in transferring memories of virtual SIMD and MIMD machines.
