Continuum Computer Architecture (aka Simultac Fonton) Simulator
Continuum Computer Architecture (CCA) is an alternative paradigm to the classical "von Neumann model." CCA will effectively utilize the billion transistors per chip of the near future.
The fundamental concept underlying CCA is that a general global model of parallel computation may be synthesized through a structure of higly replicated primitive functional blocks that unify in a single fine-grain element the basic properties of logic operations, information storage and naming, and information transfer and routing. A semantic synergism among the ensemble of fontons exhibit an emergent system behavior capable of executing higly parallel computing programs. Data structure and instruction sequences are distributed across potentially large regions of the simultac adn exection is achieved by the relative motion of these structures.
