A new multibus topology called the lattice-mesh is proposed. It is compared with other multibus architectures on the basis of established criteria such as the internode distance and of a new criterion called the hits variance. This criterion is relevant for a subclass of parallel systems that execute tree-structured computations. These systems require that the parent and child nodes of the computation tree be mapped onto adjacent processors. The lattice-mesh is seen to have very good scalability.
