Multi-cellular meta-processing unit is an assembly of a large number of small processors organized in self-similarity configurations, together capable of executing trillions of instructions per second. Multiple cells (small processors) are self-organizing processes that are inherently self-similar. Each cell has multiple independent, high speed serial I/O channels. Each cell has its own internal clock, so each cell runs at a slightly different speed as there is no synchronization between any of the cells. Each cell in an n-order system is connected to n−1 peers (neighbors at its own level) and one to the next higher level. This paper presents a package of 9 computing cells (PC/104-Plus LX800 SBC) grouped in three. So each cell is connected to 2 peers and 1 next higher level, and each loaded with its own operating system (Hilbert Engine). The 9 cells can work independently without a centralized control unit. The advantage of this new approach lies in extremely high execution capability in processing a given program. Additionally, the system is self-organizing, which means that the multitude of computing cells is transparent to the user. The system can be treated as a single or few input entities. The advantages of this system include scalability, ultra-high throughput, and fabrication of a large number of small computing cells on single or multiple Si wafers, and multiple wafers will be stacked together to enlarge the capability of the computing system.
