G4+ Daughtercards Accelerate On-Chip FFTs

Designed for use with the company's RACE++ systems, the PowerPC 7447 compute-node daughtercards exploit the latest PowerPC G4+ processors with AltiVec technology. The cards, operating at 800 MHz, allegedly boost CPU clock speeds by 60% when compared to current RACE++ daughtercards. A proprietary FFT algorithm is employed to raise the sustained instruction rate per cycle, which is said to double the speed of on-chip FFTs. The daughtercards are available in commercial and rugged versions and with extended temperature ranges up to 71°C. For more details and prices, call MERCURY COMPUTER SYSTEMS INC., Chelmsford, MA.
