|CPU Tech, Cray, Dolphin, Fabric7, HDL Design House, Iwill, Mitsui Zosen, and Triolin Join the HyperTransport Consortium
The HyperTransport Technology Consortium, a nonprofit industry organization that manages and promotes low-latency HyperTransport technology, today announced eight companies have become Consortium members. The new industry members include CPU Technology, Inc., Cray Inc., Dolphin Technology, Inc., Fabric7 Systems, Inc., HDL Design House, Iwill Corporation, Mitsui Zosen System Research, Inc. and Triolin, Inc.
"This wave of new memberships demonstrates the strong rate of adoption that HyperTransport technology is enjoing throughout the industry and internationally," said David Rich, president of the HyperTransport Technology Consortium. "HyperTransport continues to expand its presence in the supercomputing, embedded, and data center sectors, and, with its market-enabling HTXTM connectivity standard, HyperTransport technology is becoming the foundation for a new generation of high-performance semiconductor and peripheral subsystems for server clustering and compute-intensive applications."
"HyperTransport technology is a key component for developing high performance computing platforms such as Cray's XT3 and XD1 supercomputers which require very low latencies for interprocessor communications," said Dr. Steve Scott, chief technology officer, Cray Inc. "We look forward to participating in the further evolution of HyperTransport technology as members of the Consortium."
About HyperTransport Technology
HyperTransport is the industry's lowest latency, highest-performance, fully scalable, packet-based interconnect technology serving a wide range of industry segments. It is based on two 2-line to 32-line, asymmetric Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) links delivering up to 22.4 Gigabytes/second of aggregate CPU to CPU, CPU to I/O bandwidth in a highly efficient point-to-point, daisy-chain topology that replaces complex multi-level, multi-line buses. By enabling system designers to link peripheral subsystems or processors directly to the CPU or to multiple symmetric CPUs, the HyperTransport HTXTM connector makes compute intensive, leading edge CPU-to-I/O and board-to-board designs a reality for server clustering and high performance peripheral applications. HyperTransport technology is embedded in multiple CPU families from AMD, Broadcom, IBM, PMC-Sierra and Transmeta and in a variety of semiconductors and IP cores. It is fully software-compatible with legacy Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI), PCI-X and PCI Express technologies.
HyperTransport technology has been deployed in tens of millions of devices used in market leading products such as the Microsoft Xbox, Cisco routers, Apple, HP & Sun workstations, Apple, IBM, HP & Sun servers, HP blade PCs, HP & Sharp notebooks, Cray & IBM supercomputers, and all PCs, servers & cluster workstations based on the AMD Athlon 64, the AMD Opteron and Transmeta Efficeon processors. 2004 industry estimates from market analyst firm InStat project HyperTransport-based system product shipments to have reached nearly 26 million units in 2004 and to exceed 60 million units in 2006.
