" sequential computers are approaching a fundamental physical
limit on their potential power. Such a limit is the speed of light "
The IMS B002 evaluation board enables users to evaluate and demonstrate the use of transputers. The board is the first of a family of compatible evaluation boards. It provides standard buffered INMOS link connections and external control of the transputer's Reset and Analyse functions. This allows it to control a subsystem consisting of other compatible boards, or to be a component of such a subsystem.
An occam program, designed and debugged within an INMOS transputer development system, is compiled and configured for either a single IMS B002 board or a network of interconnected compatible boards. The resulting code is then downloaded into the corresponding system and executed.
