Packet Communication Within Data Flow Computers

Kerns, John Robert
Abstract
This study examines the operation and organization of three data flow computer systems, the systems from MIT, the University of Manchester, and Texas Instruments Inc. Each of the three systems is described in an idealized configuration; then the idealized systems are analyzed. Expected packet throughput within different modules of each system, and of the systems themselves, is derived. The maximum throughput expected of the idealized systems are compared with present day systems, in order to check the validity of the throughput analysis. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of each of the three data flow systems are discussed.
