Abstract

A method is described wherein a data funnel dynamically adjusts its configuration according to the bandwidth requirements of the attached I/O channels. This allows for a single funnel chip to serve in a number of different machine configurations and allows for installation of future high bandwidth channels without changing the data funnel hardware.
