LSI has provided machine designers a medium of unprecedented power and versatility. The potential of this technology has been doubling every year and promises to continue for another factor of 1000. It is inevitable that such potential will be used to achieve ever more powerful machine organizations and will, in the long run, totally change our basic concepts of machine structure and function. To date, however, the microprocessors which have been implemented are of a very conventional type. This trend poses several fundamental questions.
