Abstract : We have made progress in several areas this quarter. Highlights include: High-level Software: Public release of Sather 1.0, and major progress on pSather. Low-level Software: Design of "bare die" test software to be used for actual chip testing. Applications: A complete speech recognition application running with the Torrent instruction simulator. Network Hardware: A new network interface test chip running at 300 Mbits/second. System Hardware: Completion of the SPERT circuit board design and layout. Analog VLSI: A new communications protocol for connecting multiple chips efficiently. In addition to the cientific and technical work, we had the occasion to present a sum- mary of our work at two events: Dedication day for the new U.C. Berkeley Computer Science building, Soda Hall. (October 24) Over 50 visitors from academia, industry and government stopped by our four exhibits showing highlights of the CNS-1 project. ONR site visit and review. Dave Andes from China Lake, this da included talks, posters and informal discussion.
