Reading and writing is modelled in CSP using actions containing the symbols ? and !. These reading actions and writing actions are synchronous, and there is a one-to-one relationship between occurrences of pairs of these actions. In the CPA conference 2016, we introduced the half-synchronous alphabetised parallel operator X Y, which disconnects the writing to and reading from a channel in time. We introduce in this paper an extension of X Y, where the definition of X Y is relaxed; the reading processes are divided into sets which are set-wise asynchronous, but intra-set-wise synchronous, giving full flexibility to the asynchronous writes and reads. Furthermore, we allow multiple writers to the same channel and we study the impact on a Vertex Removing Synchronised Product. The advantages we accomplish are that the extension of X Y gives more flexibility by indexing the reading actions and allowing multiple write actions to the same channel. Furthermore, the extension of X Y reduces the end-to-end processing time of the processor or coprocessor in a distributed computing system. We show the effects of these advantages in a case study describing a Controlled Emergency Stop for a processor-coprocessor combination.
