Description

The Thomas Gross papers, ranging in date from 1977 to 1993, trace Gross’s early career working on computer science projects at Stanford University and Carnegie Mellon University. The collection consists of technical reports, memos, and notes pertaining to his work on the Stanford MIPS (Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages) project and the Warp and iWarp projects at Carnegie Mellon.

About half of the collection is made up of technical reports related to the Stanford MIPS processor project. The materials in this portion of the collection were published between 1981 and 1989 by companies such as Texas Instruments, McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company, General Electric, Sperry Corporation, and RCA, and pertain primarily to GaAs and CMOS microprocessors.

The second half of the collection consists of documentation related to Carnegie Mellon University, ranging in date from 1977 to 1993. Most of the materials pertain to the iWarp project, which was an experimental parallel system that was designed and built jointly by Carnegie Mellon University and Intel Corporation. There is also material related to the Warp project, also conducted by Carnegie Mellon, as well as a small amount of technical reports published by the Carnegie Mellon Computer Science Department.
