An antenna analysis algorithm based on the method of moments is decomposed for execution in a custom-designed computer network, namely, the extended transputer processor farm system. It comprises Inmos T801 transputers and Intel 80486 single-processor boards. Special techniques have been developed for solving the antenna problem in parallel. Software was written to handle low-level tasks for parallel processing. Compared with the conventional process farm system, the modified architecture is faster yet much cheaper to implement. The system is applicable to similar parallel algorithms with a high computation-to-communication ratio. Satisfactory computational speedup is observed
