    Recent advances in solid-state technology coupled with marked decreases in the cost of hardware have provided the impetus to reexamine computer architectures. The von Neuman computer and other early stored-program computers were constrained to single data-stream/single-instruction-stream sequential organization primarily because of economic considerations (flip flops were of the order of $100 each...

    The character, scope, and economics of computer systems have dynamically evolved into a wide variety of architectures throughout the history of computing. The present evolutionary movement of computer system architecture development is a rapid growth toward functionally distributing computer power. It therefore seems appropriate to review. recent developments in distributed-function architecture. View full abstract»

    The motivation behind this work has been the view that for 20 years computer hardware has become increasingly complex, languages more devious, and operating systems less efficient. Now, microcomputers afford some of us the opportunity to return to simpler systems. Inexpensive, LSI microcomputers could open up vast new markets. Unfortunately, development of these markets may be delayed by undue emp... View full abstract»
