Abstract: In this paper the authors present a new approach to network controller architectures on a multiprocessor basis, with Petri nets being used for both organizing and programming. Three classes of autonomous components are distinguished: `Decision units' run the place/transition net, they decide what to do; the work itself is done by components belonging to the second class; the data memory may be regarded as a third class of autonomous components.
Keywords: high speed device; parallel controller-architecture; local area network; place/transition net; multiprocessor system.
