In the past two decades, the fields of VLSI systems design and massively parallel computation have
grown into mature disciplines. Both fields began as research topics in industrial and academic
laboratories; today, they form the core technologies for several large corporations. This report
proposesamassivelyparallelcomputer, theConnectionistNetwork Supercomputer(CNS-1),which
leverages off these fields. By targeting the computer to connectionist networks and related
applications, we can focus on custom chip design and efficient software to achieve performance
