Parsytec MEGAFRAME / IBM Transputer Board


Using the MEGAFRAME / IBM adapter all the parallel processing modules of the MEGAFRAME family can be used to upgrade the IBM-PC.  Simply plugging a MEGAFRAME module into an IBM-PC slot brings the power of up to four transputers to upgrade the system by up to 40 MIPS, 3 MFLOPS, 4 MByte RAM, or fast 1024 x 1024 x 8 graphic processing.

The fitting of several modules into the PC allows a high-speed data and program interchange to be effected between the processors, using fast communication channels which are not restricted by the PC bus.  This technique enables a hitherto unattainable processing performance capability and the simple, rapid integration into distributed systems.  External transputer systems and Bus Bridgehead modules can be connected by link cables at speeds of 20 Mbit/s.
