A component endowed with some capacity of processing, characterized by four receiving and four emitting connections, which enable it to communicate easily with four other transputers.
When interconnected, four transputers constitute a kind of super-transputer with eight possible receiving and emitting external connections. This process can go on in order to create very complex integrated networks with various levels of nested transputers.
Such components are the basic "bricks" of any massively parallel integrated systems.
The transputer has some functional similarity with the formal neuron.
