Microcomputer chips with interconnected address and data pathsDavid May, Andrew Jones, Microcomputer chips with interconnected address and data paths. Patent. EP953916. September 1999. No electronic version available. External information
A computer system comprises interconnected chips (11) each having an on-chip address and data path (15), a CPU (12) arranged to send and receive addressed bit packets on the path and modules (14) with event circuitry (8) to generate addressed event request packets for distribution on the path (15), the two chips being interconnected through respective external ports (30) so that locations on each of the paths (15) form part of a common address space accessible from either chip.
