<p>The status of two projects that entail the development of a reconfigurable parallel processor system with 128 Sparc microprocessors and a superscalar processor with four operations proceeding in parallel is discussed. The design principles, system configuration, processing element, network architecture, and memory architecture of the reconfigurable processors (called KRPP) are described. The operating system for KRPP is discussed. The architecture for the superscalar (called a dynamically hazard-resolved, statically code-scheduled, nonuniform superscalar) is presented.</p>
