possible cooperations (Desktop Computers)

if you can deliver or produce ...

1.) dual processor (ATX-size) motherboard
delivered with 2 Intel or AMD processors (each up to 1.1 GigaHertz fast)
working parallel with ONE power supply
memory: 64 or 128 MB RAM onboard FOR EACH PROCESSOR
1 USB, 2 PCI slots, 2 AT-Bus slots and 2 IDE-interfaces for each processor
licensed BIOS (compatible with MS-DOS(TM) 3.1x/5.0) for each processor
The 2 motherboard halfs should be linked via serial,parallel and/or NE2000 compatible (Ethernet) connection
(switched ON/OFF via setup).
Up to 2 motherboard/processor combinations could be purchased depending on price and available form-factors (ATX/Baby-AT).

For a solution with 2 'Socket 7' CPUs you might think of a separate
CPU module carrying the 2 processors :

2.) microprocessor-derivations
  • "5Pak" : five AMD or Intel Pentium(TM) 133 Mhz to 1.1 Ghz CPUs in one
    case (e.g. stacked on top of each other with common cooler and socket).
    Every processor operates on his own cache memory ; the communication with
    the mainboard memory is handled by additional processor commands or a
    cable connection to a free ISA/PCI slot or DMA-channel.
    Preferred applications : updated versions of existing raytracing and simulation
    software for Linux, Beos and Windows(TM)
  • dual 6502/6510 CPU (running at about 1 or 2 Mhz ; common GND,Vcc,CLK signal ;
    best with 64 kBytes of RAM integrated for each processor) in one case
  • Intel 8086/88 derivation or small extension board ("above-board")
    (8086/88 PIN-compatible) with 512 kB internal RAM.
    Internal/external RAM-memory access should be automatically selected by
    the processor (compatible with the RAM memory map of an unextended
    128 kB RAM "WANG PC003" Computer, which is extended to 640 kB RAM this way).

  • Client/Server software components

  • .AVI file expander:
    converts a .AVI file (with the commonly used image size dx<320 ; dy<200)
    into a sequence of (memory or file-stored) bitmaps :
    Each bitmap represents 4
    (or more in later versions)
    consecutive images of the .AVI file

    possible extension steps of this program:

    1. step)
    similiar conversion of one AnimatedGiff file (the single images are placed
    horizontally or vertically depending on dimensions of original image).
    2. step)
    several Giff images and AnimatedGiffs are placed or expanded into one Bitmap (if smaller image
    dimensions allow this operation) ; a map resp. data structure of the type
    { <gif_file_name> , <number_of_contained_images> , <expand_direction>, xStart,yStart, dx,dy }
    for each stored .gif file is generated for the later image recompile process.
    ( <expand_direction> = 0 for horizontally or 1 for vertically ;
    valid if <number_of_contained_images> is larger than 1 )
