Paper Abstract

This article introduces a model of MPP system by the aspects of overall machine architecture, processor interconnection net, algorithm model. This system adopts some basic design principles of MPP system, while it has its own characteristics in concrete structure. For example, in the overall machine architecture MPP system is used as co- processor and a high performance personal computer is used as host machine; the system adopts distributing memory principle, uses register as local memory, uses column buffer as the adapter between shared memory and processor array. This system is mainly used for developing data parallelism. Under the CU (Control Unit) centralized controlling, all processors execute same instruction. This kind of structure is very suited for different kinds of image processing, such as convolution, transformation and median filtering. Another characteristic of this system is scalability. It can dynamically expand with question's size in logic and physical sense. In addition, this article uses two laws of parallel processing. Amdahl law and Gustafson law, to explain why the MPP system is suited for primitive image understanding.
