A new invention, the cellular neural network (CNN) universal machine and supercomputer, is presented. This is the first algorithmically programmable analog array computer having real-time and supercomputer power on a single chip. The CNN universal machine is described, emphasizing its programmability as well as global and distributed analog memory and logic, high throughput via electromagnetic waves, and complex cells that may be used also for simulating a broad class of PDEs. Its implementation, the CNN universal chip, is also described, along with its use of a multichip supercomputer. Other types of hardware implementations are also briefly discussed. Details of the algorithmic aspects of the new type of analogic (analog logic) algorithms, as well as the analogic software (language, compiler, machine code, etc.) are explained, along with a brief description of the available CNN workstation for implementing and simulating these new concepts. A broad range of applications is reviewed, including neuromorphic computing, programmable physics, programmable chemistry, and programmable bionics
