Die shot of Inmos T805 [1]

a RISC processor architecture of the 80s and 90s produced by Inmos, featuring integrated memory and serial communication links, intended for parallel computing. Chess programs running on massive Transputer networks were Moby and Zugzwang.

De Bruijn Network

Zugzwang's distributed parallel search algorithm works for any underlying Transputer network, a De Bruijn like connected network with maximum degree of 4 and a logarithmic diameter is well suited to serve a Transputer interconnection scheme [2] :
