ICL DAP FORTRAN
ICL DAP (Distributed Array Processor)—early commercial parallel computer. Available early 80s.
Trend to many, simple PEs: 64 × 64 grid of 4096 bit-serial processors.
FP performance much lower than ILLIAC, but good performance in other domains.
Module of ICL 2900 mainframe computer—shared memory and other facilities with host.
Programmed in DAP FORTRAN.
