Title
(EN) PARALLEL PROCESSING SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME
(FR) SYSTEME DE TRAITEMENT DE DONNEES EN PARALLEL ET PROCEDE D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A parallel data processing system is formed as a binary tree (20) of data processing elements (26-59). Each of the data processing elements (26-59) includes a central processing unit (60) and an interface unit (61) having registers coupled to registers in the interface unit of adjacent higher and lower order elements in the binary tree. Signals comprising instructions and data for processing in the elements (26-59) are broadcasted to the elements (26-59) via the coupled registers for simultaneous processing in the elements (26-59). Processing results are compared and reported via the registers in a resolve/report operation.
(FR)
Un système de traitement de données en parallèle a la forme d'un arbre binaire (20) d'éléments de traitement de données (25-59). Chaque élément de traitement de données (26-59) comprend une unité centrale (60) et une unité d'interface (61) possédant des registres couplés à des registres dans l'unité d'interface d'éléments adjacents d'arbres supérieur et inférieur dans l'arbre binaire. Des signaux comprenant les instructions et les données destinées à être traitées dans les éléments (26-59) sont diffusés aux éléments (26-59) via les registres couplés de manière à subir un traitement simultané dans les éléments (26-59). Les résultats du traitement sont composés et édités via les registres dans une opération de résolution/édition.
