The obscure Transputer

"Transputer" was an original CPU architecture conceived and developed in the early 80s by Inmos, an UK manufacturer of integrated electronics. Transputers were aimed to parallel and concurrent computing, with a direct support for the OCCAM programming language. There are several families of Transputers, made by Inmos itself and by ST Microelectronics (SGS Thomson). T800 is the most powerful and advanced Transputer marketed by Inmos. Despite the qualities of microarchitecture, Transputers suffered from lack of commercial support, and they disappeared from the market in the early 90s. Inmos itself was sold to ST Micro; its know how was eventually used by several companies involved in parallel and distributed computing.
