New Supercomputer Reaches Real-Time Speeds Running Large Scale System Models.

Breakthrough Scalable Architecture Based on CPU Tech Acalis[TM] and Altera Stratix II[TM] Devices

PLEASANTON, Calif. -- The Test and Measurement Business Unit of CPU Technology, Inc.([R]) (CPU Tech), a leading supplier of high performance, System-on-a-Chip (SoC) based computing solutions, announced today a new supercomputer called the SuperQ X3[TM]. The first major application ported to the SuperQ X3 is the enterprise version of SystemLab[TM], a large scale system modeling environment capable of simultaneously simulating every electronic system on a major platform, such as an aircraft or vehicle. The X3 accelerates SystemLab to the real-time performance level.

"The ability to simulate large scale, complex platforms at real-time speeds with unrestricted visibility is game changing," said Ed King, CPU Tech CEO. "This breakthrough has the potential to reduce the total lifecycle cost and timeframe to develop new platforms or to add capabilities to existing ones by as much as 50 percent."

Primarily based on Acalis[TM] FPMCs (Field Programmable Multicore Chips) from CPU Tech and Altera Corporation's (NASDAQ:ALTR) high-performance Stratix II family of FPGAs, the X3 sustains 4 teraops in a rack mountable 10U chassis using less than 5 kilowatts of power. The 3D mesh architecture supports ultra fine-grain computing problems.

"CPU Tech's SuperQ X3 exemplifies how the most advanced supercomputing architectures use Altera FPGAs to achieve industry milestones in processing power," said Danny Biran, vice president of product at corporate marketing at Altera. "The leading performance of the Stratix II family combined with its power-optimized architecture makes it the ideal FPGA choice for high-performance computing tasks."
