The Deift Parallel Process, based on a multi-computer architecture and constructed with a Multi-Broadcast Interconnection topology, is a 16 processing no&s Multiple Instruction stream, Multiple Data stream computer developed at the Deift University of Technology in 1977 to evaluate software algorithms, architectures and interconnection topologies experimentally. The Processing Elements in the nodes, containing Weitek Floating Point Multiplier/ALU combinations, are going to be interconnected in a full parallel Electro-Optic Communication System. The Routing Elements, containing Transputers, are linked by an optical reconfigurable network, which enables a simultaneous communication between all the REs.
