Abstract

See full text

A multiple-hierarchical-level multiprocessor system having first numbers of processing modules comprising, each, at least one processor and connected to a first group of common direct-access communication lines for forming a first hierarchical level (family); a first processing module of each of the aforementioned first numbers also being connected to a second group of common direct-access communication lines for forming a second hierarchical level (region); a second number of the aforementioned second groups of common communication lines being interconnected via data transmitting and receiving means for forming a third hierarcical level (region network); the aforementioned means comprising at least one processor for enabling operation independent of the aforementioned modules.
