As part of the ESPRIT GP-MIMD project a network of 54 prototype T9000 Transputers has been integrated into the data acquisition system of the CPLEAR experiment at CERN to perform on-line event filtering. Initial experience with T9000s and their interconnection using C104 packet routing chips is presented together with performance measurements and prospects for the future.
