PURPOSE

By From Ivan Sutherland, Ivan Sutherl and Adam Megacz

Abstract

We have learned enough from recent work at UC Berkeley to undertake design of a FLEET computer chip that I shall call FLEETtwo. However, before starting the detailed design effort for FLEETtwo, I plan to do a “warm up ” chip called “Infinity.” Infinity will build confidence in the circuit family and design methods we will use for FLEETtwo. I chose the name “infinity ” for this warm up chip because its main structure is two rings side by side with a shared center section in common. This structure reminds me of a figure 8 lying on its side, a symbol for infinity. The main purpose of this memo is to describe the structure I propose to build. I have, in fact, already started serious work on Infinity. I have schematics and layout for many of its parts. This memo provides the target for this work. _____________________________________________________________________________ This document is a product of a collaboration between Sun Microsystems and the University of California at Berkeley.
