Tata-Elxsi, the Indian-Singapore joint venture with the California minisupercomputer maker, has shipped two Elxsi 6400 Unix systems to South Korea. The first, valued at over $500,000, went to the Korean Standards Research Institute to support its wide range of research activities. Rated at 10 MIPS, the 32Mb system will be linked by Ethernet to Apollo and Hewlett-Packard workstations and to the institute’s existing computers, and will run Elxsi’s version of AT&T’s Unix System V. It will be used in the analysis and preparation of experimental data, to set up a database for standards, to control precision measurements and to maintain a national standards database. The system will also be connected to the Institute’s other 12 laboratories throughout the country, which were set up in l975 to promote the economic development of South Korea by establishing and maintaining a system of national standards. The second Elxsi machine was shipped to the Kook Jae University at its new campus at Chung Nung, North-East of Seoul. It will support computing throughout the campus, and it is intended to expand system as the university grows. Kook Jae’s first major project is to develop a large office automation laboratory on the Elxsi 6400 system. The US-India-Singapore joint venture was founded in l981 and does its own development work to customise the hardware and software for its customers. It has sold over 15 of the minisupers to users in India, Australia, China and Korea as well as Singapore. A Tata-Elxsi development team in Australia claims to have converted Unix System V to run on the 6400 for the California-based parent company.
