Abstract: The T9000 transputer integrates a complete computer in a single VLSI chip of over 2 million transistors. It contains 3 major subsysytems: a pipelined superscalar processor, a communications processor and a 16kbyte fully associative cache. In this paper we discuss some of the issues arising in the design of the T9000.
