The HyperTransport Technology Consortium, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing, promoting and licensing the HyperTransport interconnect technology, announced seven new companies as part of its commercial membership base.

New member companies include Celoxica Inc., DRC Computer Corp., Linux Networx Inc., Liquid Computing Corp., NetLogic Microsystems Inc., Supermicro Computer Inc. and XtremeData Inc.

"With new members spanning a wide range of market segments, the electronic industry has embraced HyperTransport as the lowest latency, highest bandwidth and most efficient interconnect technology," said Mario Cavalli, general manager of the HyperTransport Consortium. "HyperTransport-based products give OEMs a platform for delivering high-performance systems using off-the-shelf, proven and industry-standard technology. As a result, we rapidly drive down the cost and time-to-market of deploying state-of-the-art systems, which could enable scientific and technological breakthroughs never before thought possible."

Jeff Jussel, VP of marketing and GM of the Americas for Celoxica, shared that the low latency, high bandwidth interconnect provided by HyperTransport, coupled with its software-to-FPGA compilers and implementation technology, enables the use of FPGAs as parallel coprocessors to deliver massive computing acceleration with lower power and cooling requirements.

"The development of HyperTransport as an industry standard allows Celoxica to productize FPGA-based accelerated computing solutions for use in server environments for applications in financial analysis, oil and gas exploration, and life sciences," Jussel added.
