Some of these conditions include (4) microprocessor arithmetic logic unit failure, program memory failure, compiler and assembler errors and pump motor control failure.
The architecture exploits multiple levels of parallelism: * task-level parallelism between the system processor, DSP processor and DPU * data-level parallelism (DLP) with multiple lanes executing the same instructions on different data in parallel * instruction-level parallelism (ILP) via very long instruction word (VLIW) driving multiple arithmetic logic units (ALUs) per lane * sub-word single instruction multiple data (SIMD) in which each ALU can operate on multiple operands On the DPU, a kernel function runs identically on every lane processing different data.
