  abstract= "Fault tolerance can be achieved by means of redundancy.
     Multicomputer architectures allow duplicated tasks to run on
     multiple processors. In this paper we focus on multicomputer
     systems consisting of a small number of processors (4 to
     16). Fault tolerance instrumented in the operating system
     level tolerates hardware faults. This type of fault
     tolerance is known as software implemented fault tolerance.
     The information exchange of the computers requires a
     powerful communication system with fault tolerance
     properties. Since no standard system meets all requirements
     a new design was necessary. This paper describes concept,
     hardware, firmware and performance of the transputer based
     broadcast communication system (BCS)."
