Inmos Ltd yesterday announced two new products in its IQ Systems board-level Tram Transputer Module product range, and said that it was making a move into the systems integration market with the appointment of two specialised distributors, MMD/Rapid in Reading, Berkshire and Transtech Parallel Systems, in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. The Bristol-based SGS Thomson Microelectronics NV affiliate announced the Transputer-based iX card, for transforming a networked personal computer into an X terminal. The board implements an X-server with Massachusetts Institute of Technology X11.4 capability, combining a 25MHz T400 Transputer, 1Mb video RAM, an Inmos G332 colour video controller, which supports 1,024 by 768 pixel resolution, and 2Mb to 12Mb dynamic RAM. Also new is the plug-in Inmos B429 Video Processing Transputer module for dedicated video image processing. The device comprises a 25MHz T805 32-bit floating-point Transputer, two 20MHz A110 1D-2D convolver signal processors, three buffer memory arrays of 512Kb video RAM each and 1Mb four-cycle dynamic RAM. MMD/Rapid and Transtech will distribute the Inmos IQ Systems range with associated products to systems integrators for assembly and resale. Transtech prices the iX board at UKP900, the video at UKP4,130.
