Abstract : This report lists the equipment purchased with the funds provided under Grant Number AFOSR-83-0315 and describes the use which has been made of the equipment in support of Department of Defense sponsored and other research projects. The funds provided by the grant were combined with matching funds from the University of Texas to create an environment for experimental research in parallel computer design and development environment and a software development environment. The hardware design and development environment includes capabilities for the design and validation of chips and printed circuit boards. The software development environment includes a software-rich superminicomputer and a set of low-power graphics workstations. The hardware which was purchased includes a Digital Equipment Corporation VAX 11/750 computer system, Tekronix high speed digital logic analyzer, a Valid Logic Corporation workstation with the Scald design package and several Apple Macintoshes to be used as terminals and low-power workstations. A portion of the funds in the AFOSR grant was used to purchase printed circuit boards to complete the four-processor nine-memory unit configuration of the Texas Reconfigurable Array Computer (TRAC).
