An important piece of parallel computer systems is an interface between the processing node and the communications network. In many systems, this interface is largely handled by software. This document describes a general purpose interface processor, which performs requests from the network. This component can also be used with the Fluent multiprocessor system. This design was motivated by the need of a fast interface for Fluent, but can be used in many network applications.
