<p>The Data Diffusion Machine (DDM), a cache-only memory architecture (COMA) that relies on a hierarchical network structure, is described. The key ideas behind DDM are introduced by describing a small machine, which could be a COMA on its own or a subsystem of a larger COMA, and its protocol. A large machine with hundreds of processors is also described. The DDM prototype project is discussed, and simulated performance results are presented.</p>
