A processor is described which achieves highly parallel execution of programs represented in data-flow form. The language implemented incorporates conditional and iteration mechanisms, and the processor incorporates practical data-flow processing of a Fortran-level data-flow language. The processor has a unique architecture which avoids the problems of processor switching and memory/processor interconnection that usually limit the degree of realizable concurrent processing. The architecture offers an unusual solution to the problem of structuring and managing a two-level memory system.
