In the past two decades, the fields of VLSI systems design and massively parallel computation have grown into mature disciplines. Both fields began as research topics in industrial and academic laboratories; today, they form the core technologies for several large corporations. This report proposes a massively parallel computer, the Connectionist Network Supercomputer (CNS-1), which leverages off these fields. By targeting the computer to connectionist networks and related applications, we can focus on custom chip design and efficient software to achieve performance goals which challenge the best that the industry has to offer.
