    In the design of uniformly structured and tightly coupled multiple microprocessor/microcomputer systems, if each node is allowed to access certain portions of the memory in each of its neighbour nodes, bus contention may occur and an intelligent priority resolver must be incorporated to solve the contention problem effectively. A successful access is indicated by a successful handshake between the... View full abstract»

    A microprocessor-based unit to aid the teaching of digital systems design is described. The unit comprises a patchboard interfaced to a microcomputer which simulates logic blocks of any desired complexity; these may be physically interconnected on the patchboard to assemble a digital system. The configuration of logic blocks on the patchboard is specified by data in the microcomputer's memory; thi... View full abstract»

    The performance of a symmetric multiprocessor system on the level of memory requests is studied. The multiprocessor consists of a number of identical processors, each having its local private memory and each being connected via a system of identical buses to all global memory modules. The system is modelled by a Markovian queueing network and solved approximately by a hierarchical decomposition te... View full abstract»

    The paper discusses various aspects of the design methodology of highly reliable microprocessorbased computer systems. The fault-tolerant system developed by the authors is described with particular reference to a pre-application self-test. Methods of illustrating fault-tolerant operation are also considered.

    The problem of smoothing, point, line and edge detection in image processing is considered. It has been shown that computation in each case can be speeded up considerably by looking at the redundancy. The methods are simple and can be implemented easily in software or hardware.
