Christy, P. ; MasPar Comput. Corp., Sunnyvale, CA, USA

The software product set of the MasPar computer is examined, the key issues being the programming model, software philosophy, parallel virtuality, programming languages and their compilers, application porting and adaptation, and programming support. VLSI technology and massively parallel architecture are combined in the MP-1 to offer what would be considered supercomputer performance at a minicomputer price.<>
