The work described in this report is part of a project to investigate high performance communication network interface structures which are compatible with existing operating systems. The aim of the project is to increase the effective speed of Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) for an application by adding parallel processing power to the communication subsystem without making major changes to the application programming environment. This document describes the Transputer interface to the host. This interface provides an asynchronous bidirectional communication path between a SCSI bus and a number of Transputer links. A mechanism for supporting Remote Procedure Calls between the host and a network interface is provided as part of the interface.
