A VLIW (very long instruction word) architecture machine called the TRACE has been built along with its companion Trace Scheduling compacting compiler. This machine has three hardware configurations, capable of executing 7, 14, or 28 operations simultaneously. The 'seven-wide' achieves a performance improvement of a factor of five or six for a wide range of scientific code, compared to machines
