In this paper, we present a prototype implementation of the Multicore Communications API (MCAPI) for the Intel Single-Chip Cloud Computer (SCC). The SCC is a 48 core concept vehicle for future many-core systems that exhibit message-passing oriented architectures. The MCAPI specification, recently developed by the Multicore Association, resembles a lightweight interface for message-passing in today's multicore systems. The presented prototype implementation should be used to evaluate the MCAPI's capability and feasibility for its employment also in future many-core systems.
