Abstract or Summary
  • An 8 bit microcontroller slave unit was designed, constructed, and tested to demonstrate advantages and feasibility of master/slave parallel processing using conventional processors and relatively slow inter-processor communications. An 8 bit ISA bus controlled by an 80X86 is interfaced to a logic block that controls data flow to and from the slave processors. The slave processors retrieve tasks sent by the master processor and once completed, return results to the master that are buffered for the master's retrieval. The task message sent to the slave processors has task description and task parameters. The master has access to the bi-directional buffer and a status byte for each slave processor. Considerable effort is made to allow the hardware and software architecture to be expandable such that the general design could be used on different master/slave targets. Attention is also given to cost effective solutions such that development and possible market production can be considered.
