    Dear Friends,
    I want to know if Multiple (atleast >1) PowerPC based Microcontrollers have ever been interconnected on a single board (on any server/console etc), as to combine their processing power? If yes, what is the approach used in it? Is it some sort of custom HostBridge carrying out the interprocessor communication or is this functionality supported by the micro-controller itself. If anyone can detail me on this, I will be very grateful for that. I'm not looking for any circuit ideas, just explanation on implementation methodologies. Thanx

    I believe I've heard of at least one that was made up for use in a satellite system some years ago -- unfortunately I do not know the details of how it was interconnected..
