HEWLETT-PACKARD HAS OEM, SILICON FOUNDRY PACT WITH WEITEK

Rather than design its own floating point co-processor for its Precision Architecture and other high-performance scientific machines, Hewlett-Packard Co has decided to adopt the Weitek 2264 and 2265 chip set – and has agreed to manufacture the parts for Weitek in its 1.2 micron CMOS process. The chip set has claimed peak performance of 40Mflops, and the wafer-manufacturing agreement, which is initially for three years, calls for Hewlett-Packard to make the 2264/65 set in packaged form for Weitek, and also to make future products for the Sunnyvale company.
