Abstract

. Interface Standards (IS) [9] become available for the inter- connection of distributed high performance transputer systems; for in- stance the Fibre Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) and the High Per- formance Parallel Interface (HIPPI). The FDDI with 100 Mb/s back- bone speed is an exellent Interface Standard for a Transputer Link In- terface (TLI) to interconnect distributed 100 Mb/s Inmos IMS T9000 links [13, 12]. For a Gigabit communication channel the high performance point-to-point HIPPY is a 1.6 Gb/s Interface Standard [7, 8]. In the past the communication links had represented the performance bottlenecks of distributed transputer systems. However, now having enormous band- width the communication bandwidth is no longe
