Abstract

We describe an I/O architecture for a high performance next generation computer. The architecture proposed in this paper makes special provisions for communication networks. In order to allow for the expected multi-media and time-critical components of future computer usage, we propose the concept of "Illogical buses" which gives the illusion that there are a number of dedicated buses between the components of a system. A logical bus has a number of performance parameters associated with it, and the system architecture ensures that the performance parameters for each logical bus are satisfied during the operation of the system.
