Even higher performance is promised by the other licencee named by Sun, Beaverton, Oregon-based Bipolar Integrated Technology, which plans to implement the SPARC in its proprietary BIT1 ECL process, with a view to getting it into production and available on the open market in late 1988. Bipolar reckons that its implementation will offer sustained performance of more than five times that of currently available 32-bit RISC microprocessors, and it intends to offer an even higher-performance version in 1989 using its BIT2 technology, both of which will find their way into future Sun products as well as onto the open market. Bipolar’s existing parts include a floatingpoint chip set in both ECL 10KH and TTL versions consisting of a multi plier and arithmetic logic unit that delivers 60MFLOPS performance for non-pipelined 64-bit operation.
