There are a few search hits on Parasytec, but it appears the correct
name for the company was _Parsytec_. Headquartered in Aachen, they built
several different lines of Transputer-based systems between 1985 and
1994, ranging from 10 to (at least in theory) 16,384 processors.

And they did frequently use Sun workstations as host or systems. Here's
the page for the board I was thinking of, the "Parsytec BBK-S4 Adapter
for SBUS Systems"
