Abstract

See full text

A plurality of operation units are connected to one another. The operation units include a processor, a buffer memory, and a data transfer control circuit connected between the processor and the buffer memory for controlling the data input-output with the buffer memories in the other of the operation units. The buffer memories and the data transfer control circuit are connected with one another by data buses, respectively.
