The design and performance evaluation of a multiprocessor system are described. The system consists of processing units sharing the processing of the same instruction stream, where tasks consist of individual instructions. The multiprocessing aspect is completely transparent to the user. The system configuration developed calls for two microprogrammed processing units sharing the same local and control stores.
Computer, control unit, interlocks, lookahead, microprogramming, multiprocessing, parallel processing, pipelining.
