HPS (High Performance Substrate) is a new microarchitecture targeted for implementing very high performance computing engines. Our model of execution is a restriction on fine granularity data flow. This paper introduces the model, provides the rationale for its selection, and describes the data path and flow of instructions through the microengine.
