A microprocessor-based system serves as a message routing switch for communication between a number of different devices. Any device attached to the switch can communicate with any other attached device through a number of serial and parallel Input/Output ports. Communication between devices attache ...

Jack B Dennis, David P Misunas: Data processing apparatus for highly parallel execution of stored programs. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Arthur A Smith Jr, Gerald Altman, May 8, 1979: US04153932 (54 worldwide citation)

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 ...

A processor is described which achieves highly parallel execution of programs represented in data-flow form. The processor operates in a data-driven fashion; that is, an instruction of a program in the processor is enabled for execution upon the arrival of all required operands, and upon being execu ...

David P Misunas, Jack B Dennis: Data processing apparatus for highly parallel execution of data structure operations. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Arthur A Smith Jr, Gerald Altman, April 10, 1979: US04149240 (42 worldwide citation)

A digital computer may be structured in two separate sections, one of which performs the execution of arithmetic and conditional instructions, and the other which contains and performs operations upon data structures. The organization of the structure processing section of a digital computer is desc ...

Robert G Jacobsen, Thomas H Warner, David P Misunas: Impulse noise removing apparatus. David P Misunas, Morse Altman Oates & Bello, March 6, 1979: US04143333 (11 worldwide citation)

In a noise reduction system of the type in which an audio signal is delayed in time to permit detection of and reaction to impulse noise before application of the audio signal to a loudspeaker or the like, a transformed version of the audio signal is compared with its time-averaged value, and a resu ...
