A deadlock-free communication system for a transputer network

Authors: Gallizzi, E., Cannataro, M., Spezzano, G., Talia, Domenico


The design and an implementation overview of a communication system which provides deadlock-free operation in a tightly coupled message-passing multicomputer system is presented. Furthermore, routing simulation results for a 4x 10 computer array are described. The communication system has many positive characteristics including provable deadlock-freedom, guaranteed message arrival, and automatic local congestion reduction. This system has been implemented in Occam 2 on a network of Transputers.
