Recent developments in hardware message routing devices have demonstrated significant performance benefits for parallel processing networks. This work describes a system which uses a single chip interface between the high performance StrongARM processor and the existing ICR C416 message routing chip. The ICR C416 is a non-blocking communications routing device. Each device allows concurrent communications with up to 16 processors. A distributed parallel processing system can be constructed using the StrongARM and ICRC416 devices, with features similar to that of a transputer system but with the benefits of the higher clock speed and cache memory of the StrongARM processor.
