1. The state of being structurally parallel.
2. In psychology, the mind-body doctrine that for every conscious process a corresponding or parallel organic process exists, without asserting a causal interrelation between the two.

From fundamental hardware to new user-friendly programming languages that will allow developers to exploit parallelism automatically, the PPL will allow programmers to implement their algorithms in accessible, "domain-specific" languages while at deeper, more fundamental levels of software, the system would do all the work for them in optimizing the code for parallel processing.
Kevin Kurtz, President and CEO of SV said, "Over the next few years, we believe the key emphasis for probe card products will be on cost/performance benefits that are driven by high parallelism and fine pitch probing capabilities.
This gives users of OpenMP-compliant tools the flexibility to extend multiprocessing support to an entire program, or only to functions within the program, such as 3-D rendering or particle-system simulation, that use parallelism to best advantage.
This era is going to be about exploiting some sort of explicit parallelism, and if there's a problem that has confounded computer science for a long time, it is exactly that," Hennessy said.
Easy parallelism, large memory space, and the HALstation performance add up to a winning combination.

One real difference is in how Engel and Hemscheidt accomplish platen parallelism.
The scalable parallel systems will build upon the experience that IBM customers have gained with LAN-based RISC System/6000 clusters and will leverage the IBM Research Division's experience in the area of parallelism.
After curing, the press can open while maintaining the platen corners in the same relative degree of parallelism, rather than in a "zero" attitude, so as to avoid damaging the newly cured surface.
Due to this, it is possible to obtain a perfect parallelism and therefore a fast speed and the maximum precision during the mold clamping, to ensure high quality and productivity, according to the company.
