Paper Abstract

Computational models have been introduced by Kung as a technique for specifying the usage patterns for parallel architectures. The purpose of this paper is to consider the processor farm for applications that are amenable to data parallelism and show its relationship to the computational models. The processor farm is a general abstract machine model for VLSI processor arrays based on the Communicating Sequential Processing (CSP) model of computation and is widely used to program networks of INMOS transputers. The paper reports on recent work at Leeds applying the processor farm to a range of image processing and synthesis computations.
