Abstract

As the size of VLSI (very large-scale integration) chips and the integration density of their circuits increase, there is a greater likelihood of functions which are totally logically independent of each other being implemented on them. Such functions may be, for example, multiprocessor or identical processor functions, as shown in the figure.
