The Supercomputer Toolkit, a proposed family of standard hardware and software components from which special-purpose machines can be easily configured, is introduced. Using the Toolkit, a scientist or an engineer, starting with a suitable computational problem, will be able to readily configure a special-purpose multiprocessor that attains supercomputer-class performance on that problem, at a fraction of the cost of a general purpose supercomputer. Some applications, the hardware, and the software are described
