%X This paper describes real\-time software features to support
parallel processing. Synchronized channel communications are
implemented as a basic operating system function for a
distributed memory multi\-processor StrongARM system.
Inter\-processor communications are handled using the ICR
C416 packet router switch, which makes the system scalable.
The system will provide a considerable layer of software
abstraction and support to the end\-users for developing
their applications. The kernel layers, inter\-process
communications, control flow of application software, and
the stages involved in application development for
end\-users, are described here. Some performance
considerations are briefly discussed.
