We present an implementation of a multicast network of processors. The processors are connected in a fully connected network and it is possible to broadcast data in a single instruction. The network works at the processor-memory speed and therefore provides a fast communication link among processors. A number of interesting architectures are possible using such a network. We show some of these architectures which have been implemented and are functional. We also show the system software calls which allow programming of these machines in parallel mode.
