The Denelcor HEP was a uniform shared memory multiprocessor that used fine-grain multithreading to tolerate memory latency, synchronization latency, and even functional unit latency. Six systems were delivered to customers during the years 1981-1985.
This talk will describe the evolution, innovations, and disasters that accompanied the development of hardware and software for the HEP.
