Abstract : An inventive mapped memory interface product and process are provided. The inventive product carries out the steps of transmitting an information packet between a provider and a consumer processor; using the information packet to map a portion in a shared memory to which data will be transferred from a provider processor and from which the data will be extracted via a consumer processor; using the information packet to tell the consumer processor where the data is located; directing the local memory of both the provider processor and consumer processor to the portion mapped in the shared memory; transferring data from the provider processor to the mapped portion in the shared memory; and extracting the data from the mapped portion of the shared memory and transferring it in the local memory of the consumer computer.
