The authors describe the application of silicon compilation technology to the design of a supercomputer. A machine based on both data-driven and demand-driven (ADD) paradigms is developed and partially described in the YASC high-level silicon compiler language. The YASC language is sufficiently powerful to describe the complex concurrency mechanisms used in the supercomputer design. With this high-level silicon compilation tool, the further evolutionary designs of the basic ADD concept can be accomplished with ease.
