Parallel Computing Research Groups, Projects and Services
- Alewife Project at MIT. This is a large-scale multiprocessor which integrates both cache-coherent, distributed shared memory and user-level message-passing in a single integrated hardware framework. Each Alewife node consists of a 33 MHz Sparcle integer unit, an off-the-shelf FPU, 64 kbytes of direct-mapped cache, and 4 Mbytes of globally-shared main memory. The nodes communicate via messages on a two-dimensional mesh network. The current implementation scales directly to 512 nodes. A single-chip Communication and Memory Management Unit (CMMU) on each node holds the cache tags and implements the memory coherence protocol by synthesizing messages to other nodes.
