Summary
  • British scientist Iann Barron is determined to see his revolutionary microprocessor, the transputer, succeed in the face of broad scepticism and US competition. Inmos, the firm which Barron helped found in 1978, is for sale for the second time since its sale to Thorn EMI in 1984, and no takers have expressed interest. Barron says that European high technology start-ups are made difficult by an environment which is hostile to innovative products, slow-paying buyers, slavish worship of US trends, and an identifiable bias against European technology. The transputer chip can be employed in a standard microprocessor, but can also serve as a building block for computers that do parallel processing. The transputer's revolutionary nature required development of a special programming language known as OCCAM. Transputer sales for the year ended Mar 1986 were just $11 million of total company revenues of $68 million, but transputer orders are expected to hit $25 million in 1987.
