Paper Abstract

This paper describes the Kiwivision Multi-Transputer Module which has been developed at Industrial Research Limited. It is a MIMD architecture which is tightly coupled to external hardware compatible to the MAXbus pipeline standard. The features of Kiwivision are described with particular emphasis given to its inter-processor connectivity and data handling abilities. An implementation of the 2D fast Fourier Transform is used to illustrate the data movement strengths of the design.
