Advanced Architecture and Technology of Supercomputing Systems
This paper presents a brief review of our vector and parallel processing experiences, basic hardware technologies for supercomputers and the architecture of the SX-3 Supercomputer with a vector peak speed of 22 GFlops for achieving the ultra highspeed processing. In particular, LSI and packaging technology, and the system and processor architecture of the SX-3 are described.
