Project Aims

The Transputer Restoration Project aims to bring into service and maintain two fully functioning Inmos Transputer Development System units. The first unit contains 64 processors and runs a demonstration of parallel processing of this 1980's technology using a Mandelbrot Set generator and a Ray Tracing simulation.

Secondly, a system containing two banks of 12 processors with dedicated video cards and monitors to drive a dual flight simulator.

A longer term project is to restore a large system based around a network of 100 T9000 Transputers that were originally used for fast data capture at CERN.
