Red Storm to be assembled in New Mexico
Red Storm will be faster, yet smaller and less expensive, than previous supercomputers, say researchers at the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Sandia National Laboratories, where the machine will be assembled.
The first quarter of the $90 million, 41.5 teraflops (trillion operations/second) machine should be installed at Sandia by the end of September and fully up and running by January, says Bill Camp (Sandia’s Director of Co

Grace and George, a pair of socially skilled robots developed by a team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, the Naval Research Laboratory and Swarthmore College, will participate in the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) annual Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition July 27-29, at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif.
Grace and George are six-foot-tall, socially adept, autonomous talking robots with digitally animated faces. The robots will wor
Scientists achieve smallest-ever spacing in nanoscale structures
In a breakthrough that could lead to dramatically smaller memory chips and other electronic components, Princeton scientists have found a way to mass produce devices that are so small they are at the limit of what can be viewed by the most powerful microscopes.
The achievement is an advance over current techniques, which require expensive and time-consuming procedures to create anything so small. The technique
With ever increasing demands for greater miniaturisation and the use of flexible circuitry the need for improved fabrication methods for high resolution printed circuit boards is becoming more important. By precise control of the etching process inventors from the University of Oxford have been able to make the reliable production of High Resolution Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) with conductors down to 10 µm wide more of a cost effective reality.
PCBs currently include conductors as narrow
To support the continuing alignment of Software AG to the new strategy, Chief Executive Officer Karl-Heinz Streibich has restructured Research and Development. He has integrated the research and development of integration solutions into the strategic focus area XMLi and the research and development for modernizing Enterprise Transaction Systems, into the focus area ETS Modernization. Each Research and Development unit will be managed by a Chief Technology Officer. In the course of the restructuring,
