By CBR Staff Writer

FPS Computing Inc has got off to a flying start with its forthcoming Model 540EA Sparc-based Unix supercomputer, winning a $1.5m order for a four-processor model from Nuclear Electric, the arm of the UK Central Electric Generating Board that is to remain in government hands. The machine, rated at 133 MIPS none of the 80860 co-processors fitted – will support 10 Sparcstation-1s from Sun Microsystems Inc on an Ethernet, and will be used in total nuclear power plant simulation to assist in the design of control systems and operating procedures.
