ABSTRACT
<p>It is argued that although it is not yet clear which of the two wafer scale integration (WSI) forms, monolithic or hybrid, will gain the lead to an enabling technology for second-generation massively parallel computers (MPCs), there are noticeably more backers for hybrid-WSI. The application requirements, implementation problems, and engineering issues of MPCs are discussed. In particular, the associative string processor (ASP) modules, which comprise building blocks for second-generation MPC configurations, are described. The progress reported in developing ASP modules is quantitatively extrapolated to other MPC implementations.</p>
