Objectivies and Approach

The development of parallel computing environments and parallel algorithms for medical images require a high-level professional software engineering environment supporting each phase of a multi-transputer system design. Such a software environment is the HAMLET tool set, developed within ESPRIT project 6290.

The main objective of the AHMED project is to demonstrate the industrial applicability of the HAMLET tool set. HAMLET was developed to support the design of transputer-based embedded systems. Within the current project we intend to assess the applicability of HAMLET in general, as well as in the particular case of the urine analyser Seditron, a multi-transputer based instrument developed by ASK Ltd.
