Patent 5740463 Issued on April 14, 1998. Estimated Expiration Date: July 20, 2015. Estimated Expiration Date is calculated based on simple USPTO term provisions. It does not account for terminal disclaimers, term adjustments, failure to pay maintenance fees, or other factors which might affect the term of a patent.
Intercommunication of data between adjacent element processors (3) is performed through a memory unit (6) which is independently accessible to the respective element processors (3) without interfere with the operations of the other element processors (3). Thus, memory access and data transfer can be achieved without interfere with the operations of individual element processor (3). Furthermore, it becomes possible to solve differential equations by asynchronous communication system.
