TRANSPUTER SUPERCOMPUTER FROM QUEENSLAND INSTITUTE

A super-fast Inmos Transputer-based supercomputer, developed by a team of Australian undergraduates at the Queensland Institute of Technology, is generating interest internationally, reports Computerwoche. The computer, expected to find applications in the fluidics, geo-physics, robotics and data communications markets, is currently being evaluated by a range of mining companies Down Under, and has reportedly surpassed all its creators’ expectations. The machine is designed to support an unlimited number of Transputer-based nodes, so that performance can be tailored to the requirements of the application. The machine is programmed using the Inmos language compilers.
