Charles A Finnila: Cooperative-word linear array parallel processor. Hughes Aircraft Company, John M May, Rafael A Cardenas, William H MacAllister, July 20, 1976: US03970993 (92 worldwide citation)

A "cooperative-word" linear array parallel processor comprises many logically identical memory words or micro-processors ordered in a linear array by a Chaining channel. Inasmuch as the Chaining channel can contain different information (either data to be processed or control information) at each wo ...

Louis E Gates Jr, Charles A Finnila: Stacked wafer electronic package. Hughes Aircraft Company, Leonard A Alkov, Wanda K Denson Low, September 11, 1990: US04956746 (55 worldwide citation)

The electronic package (10) is comprised of a plurality of support plates (12-24), each of which has a plenum therein and preferably webs extending into the plenum for fluid flow control and heat transfer. A wafer (104) is mounted in a recess (100) in the support plate (12) so that fluid in the plen ...

Charles A Finnila, Antonio J Mendez: Scalable, quantized, delay-line array based on nested, generalized spirals. Mendez R&D Associates, Norton R Townsley, September 14, 1999: US05953468 (21 worldwide citation)

The present invention is a compact, quantized, photonic delay-line array based on nested, generalized, spirals. The array includes N optical waveguides and is quantized in that consecutive waveguides can have their delays differ by the same delay difference design constant, D. Thus the delay for the ...
