In this thesis the Nu Machine is evaluated as a parallel processing testbed. The system consists of MC6801 0 microprocessor boards, half megabyte memory boards and a system diagnostic unit. The NuBus is used as its shared backplane bus. The suitability and the problems encountered in implementing the shared memory, shared bus multiprocessor system are studied and solutions proposed. Benchmark programs are designed, coded in MC6801 0 assembly language and run on the testbed. The system performance is evaluated.
