Abstract

The Micro-Grain Array Processor-2 (MGAP-2) is a two dimensional SIMD array of 49,152 fine-grain processors, designed primarily for high performance signal processing. Each processor can compute any one of 65,536 boolean transformations. What separates the MGAP-2 from existing fine-grain arrays is its processor level interconnect control. Each processor can independently select its communication direction. This allows a programmer to cluster groups of processors into larger computational units, and provides flexible interprocessor communication.
