Vector co-processor builder CSP Inc of Billerica, Massachusetts, has a joint development agreement with Perkin-Elmer Corp’s minicomputer arm Concurrent Computer Corp. The effort, to enhance the floating point performance of the Tinton Falls, New Jersey company’s Series 3200 minicomputers, involves Concurrent funding the interfacing of a new vector processor under development at CSP to its machines. The agreement subsequently calls for CSP to ship over $2m of the new processors to Concurrent, starting in about one year. The vector processors should improve floating point performance of the Series 3200 10 to 100-fold.
