Abstract of the Disclosure

A general-purpose computer system is disclosed which is particularly adapted to be constructed of a plurality of large integrated circuit arrays. The computer system consists of partitioned parts which are interconnected by means of system buses. Each partitioned part of the computer system includes registers for storing information. The term "information" is meant to include instructions, commands, addresses, status and data. Each partitioned part also includes means for controlling information transfers between its registers and the system buses. Each partitioned part further includes processor or control responsive to the contents of at least one of its registers to accomplish a manipulation of the contents of at least one of its registers. Each partitioned unit is preferably fabricated in the form of a single integrated circuit array
