GDA Technologies Inc. has licensed its HyperTransport IP cores to Cray Inc. The cores will be used for the development of Cray's Sandia National Laboratories supercomputer code named "Red Storm".

The licensed IP cores include HyperCave and HyperCaveLite for ASIC and FPGA integration, respectively and are expected to provide a narrow, low power, and fast point-to-point link between the devices in the system. They support 16-bit data width with clock speeds of up to 800MHz, and DDR memory signaling, providing aggregate throughput of 51.2Gbps.

Cray has been tapped by Sandia National Laboratories to develop the Red Storm supercomputer. Red Storm will be based on a Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) architecture with peak performance of 40 trillion calculations per second using two calculations/clock cycle, and scalability to hundreds of teraOPS. The supercomputer is expected to be seven times faster than Sandia Lab's current supercomputer and is scheduled to be operational in 2004.
