A sixteen bit parallel communication network with a ring structure is being developed. The network's primary function is planned to be a reliable and fast communication between the processors of a multiprocessor system.  Broadcast, multicast and unicast messages are supported in this environment. For system development, three cards which constitute the physical layer excluding the CRC check are mounted on three IBM PCs.  The CRC check, network layer, transport layer and application layer all developped under DOS.
