Mercury Computer Systems Inc. & Cell BE Processor

Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. announced (11/20/06) a cooperation with the Institute of Medical Physics (IMP) of Erlangen, Germany, which is focused on the joint development and commercialization of medical imaging technology deployed on the Cell Broadband Engine (TM) (BE) processor.

Under the terms of the agreement, Mercury is working together with the IMP on designing and implementing ambitious reconstruction and visualization algorithms with real-time performance on the Cell BE processor, to deliver orders-of-magnitude performance increases while also reducing the complexity and costs of medical image processing systems. Together with IMP technology, Mercury will integrate the algorithms into high-performance Cell BE processor- based systems designed to significantly accelerate the reconstruction and visualization of medical imaging data for medical OEMs.
