Channels as an essential part of a processor's instruction set were first launched with the Transputer. We have made two major alterations: the semantics of the input and output instruction are changed in order to overlap communication, and channels are allowed to be communicated over channels (higher order communications). All operations can be easily implemented in hardware.
