Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present different 3D hardware packages for the implementation of parallel architectures with a 3D-mesh. They can be used with shared memory MIMD multiprocessors or massively parallel message passing MIMD multicomputers. Two versions for monochip and multichip packages, and one version for 3D board assembly are detailed. The basic features are discussed : packing density, electrical properties, cooling and fault tolerance.
