- Von Neumann architecture:
- The von Neumann syndrome is a computing term coined by Prof. C. V. Ramamoorthy (after having listened to a keynote by Reiner Hartenstein, and named after John von Neumann's model of computer architecture). (Source: Wikipedia: Von Neumann syndrome)
- Parallel computing:
- Ramamoorthy noted that for most applications in massively parallel computing systems with thousands or tens of thousands of processors the performance can be less than hoped. (Source: Wikipedia: Von Neumann syndrome)
- Central processing unit:
- Secondly a fall in programmer productivity when faced with systems that are massively parallel, the difficulties in developing for parallelism (or thread-level parallelism in multi-core CPUs) when previously this was not an issue. (Source: Wikipedia: Von Neumann syndrome)
- Field-programmable gate array:
- The term also explains the Reconfigurable computing paradox, where the use of reconfigurable computing on FPGAs produces faster results despite a lower speed, where, instead of moving data around, the locality of execution is optimized by placement and routing.
