Fast prototyping of architectural designs using transputers

Authors: Skillicorn, David B.


The existence of a processor with on-board communication facilities, such as the transputer, makes it possible to prototype new hardware designs by emulating their functional units on networks of transputers. This gives better information about performance and appearance than simulation and can be considerably easier to build. It also permits software to be built and executed with performance that approximates the final system-hence, software prototyping is also possible. We describe our experiences with two different systems: an object-based vision system and an implementation of the functional language Lucid.
