Spanning Multiaccess Channel Hypercube Computer Interconnection
September 1988 (vol. 37 no. 9)
pp. 1137-1142
A distributed computer system based on a hypercube topology is proposed, where multiaccess channels spanning all dimensional axes provide processor interconnection. The multiprocessor system can be built at relatively low cost by combining the recent advances in high-capacity channels available through fiber optics, and demand-assignment multiple-access protocols, creating a highly fault-tolera
