Horizontal architectures are attractive for cost-effective, high performance scientific computing. They are, however, very difficult to schedule. Consequently, it is difficult to develop compilers that can generate efficient code for such architectures. The polycyclic architecture has been developed specifically to make the task of scheduling easy. As a result, it has been possible to develop a powerful scheduling algorithm that yields optimal and near-optimal schedules for iterative computations. This novel architecture and this scheduling algorithm are the topic of this paper.
