%X We have investigated the construction of a parallel computer
using IEEE 1355 high\-throughput low\-latency DS link
networks and high\-performance commodity processors running
a standard operating system. In this context a DS Network
Interface Controller (DSNIC) has been developed. The
board\[rs]s hardware, controlled by FPGA firmware, together
with the host software, provides a CSP based message passing
interface between standard OS processes. This paper
describes how the design and realisation of the DSNIC
refleat our aim: low\-latency high\-throughput
inter\-process communication. We show the benchmark results,
their analysis, and suggest further performance gains that
might be possible.
