Abstract

Aspects of a method and system for supporting communication among a plurality of heterogeneous processing elements of a processing system are described. The aspects include an interconnection network (110) that supports services between any two processing nodes within a plurality of processing nodes. A predefined data word format is utilized for communication among the plurality of processing nodes on the interconnection network (110), the predefined data word format indicating a desired service and desired routing. The desired routing is utilized to allow for the broadcasting of real time inputs. Further, look-ahead logic (500) in the network is used to maximize throughput for the network by each processing node. Finally, a security field (344) is utilized to limit peek-poke privileges for a particular node. With the aspects of the present invention, multiple processing elements are networked in an arrangement that allows fair and efficient communication in a point-to-point manner to achieve an efficient and effective system.
