  abstract= "The Inmos transputer was more than a family of processor
     chips; it was a concept, a new way of looking at system
     design problems. In many ways that concept lives on in the
     hardware design houses of today, using macrocells and
     programmable logic. New Intellectual Property (IP) design
     houses now specialise in the market the transputer
     originally addressed, but in many cases the multi-threaded
     software written for that hardware is still designed and
     written using the techniques of the earlier sequential
     systems. The paper discusses the original aims of the
     transputer as a system design component, how they have been
     addressed over the intervening decades and where we should
     be focussing our thoughts for the new millennium."
