Siemens-Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG has launched the H121-F mainframe, the first model in its next-generation System 7.500 H121 family of top-end processors, and rates the machine at 500 MFLOPS. Built in ECL, the machine includes one scalar and one vector processor, both sourced from Fujitsu Ltd and remicrocoded to run Siemens’ BS2000 operating system, and the Munich company says that it will announce a dual-scalar, dual-vector processor version in a few weeks. Siemens claims that the vector processing, which uses IBM Type/2 channel technology, is designed for compute-intensive applications while the scalar processor is suited to commercial processing. A minimum configuration has 64Mb of main memory which can be expanded to 1Gb, and system memory can be expanded to 2Gb. The H121-F includes Smart Card access for data security. Available now in the UK, it will cost about 20% more than the previous generation H120, Siemens says.
