mimd is a tool for streaming MP3 and MPEG media using multicast and the realtime transport protocol .
()ultiple-()nstruction ()ultiple ()ata. One of the four classifications of parallel computers. In 1966, Michael Flynn classified systems according to the number of instruction streams and the number of data streams. The other three classifications: SISD: ()ingle-()nstruction ()ingle ()ata. SIMD: ()ingle-()nstruction ()ultiple ()ata. MISD: ()ultiple-()nstruction ()ingle ()ata.
Multiple Input Multiple Data
Definition by Charles Belov, 1997] Multiple Instruction Multiple Data. Multiple computer instructions, which may or may not be the same, and which may or may not be synchronized with each other, perform actions simultaneously on two or more pieces of data. The class of distributed memory MIMD machines is the fastest growing segment of the family of high-performance computers.
Multiple Instructions, Multiple Data parallel computer with each processor working independently on its own data -- cf SIMD, SPMD
A design for parallel computers characterized by the simultaneous execution of many different instruction streams (programs), each of which handles different data.
architecture a parallel processing system architecture where there is more than one processor and where each processor performs different instruction on different data values simultaneously. [SILC99
Multiple instruction, multiple data -- a type of architecture for parallel computers
A parallel programming model in which different processors perform different instructions on different sets of data.
Multiple-Instruction-Multiple-Data. A category in Flynn's taxonomy.
Multiple Instruction Multiple Data. See data flow architecture.
Multiple Intructions Multiple Data
(n.) Multiple Instruction, Multiple Data; a category of Flynn's taxonomy in which many instruction streams are concurrently applied to multiple data sets. A MIMD architecture is one in which heterogeneous processes may execute at different rates.
Multiple instruction multiple data. Category of applications in which many instruction streams are applied concurrently to multiple data sets.
Acronym for multiple instruction, multiple data. A parallel computer with multiple independent threads of control. Conventional symmetric multiprocessors are MIMD architectures.
A parallel programming model in which a different processors execute either the same or different programs on different sets of data. See SIMD.
Multiple Instruction, Multiple Data, an architecture in which multiple instruction streams are executed simultaneously. Each single instruction may handle multiple data elements (e.g., one or more vectors in a vector machine). While single-processor vector computers are able to operate in MIMD mode because of overlapped functional units, MIMD terminology is used more generally to refer to multiprocessor machines. See also SIMD, SISD; for more information, see the "Taxonomy of Architectures" section of CTC's Parallel Processing Concepts module.
See multiple instruction stream, multiple data stream.
Multiple Instruction Multiple Data (MIMD) is a type of parallel computing architecture where many functional units perform different operations on different data. Examples would be a multiprocessor or transputer computer, or a network of workstations. The term MIMD originated as part of Flynn's taxonomy which he first proposed in 1972.
