Mercury Computer Systems to increase Cell portfolio

Mercury Computer Systems (MRCY) announced (6/20/07) that it is collaborating with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to apply multicore technology such as Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and the Cell Broadband Engine(TM) (BE) processor to help tackle computational challenges in national security, cyberspace, and bioinformatics.

"We're excited to be working with PNNL, and about the possibilities of applying multicore computing technology to enable the development of economically viable computing solutions to previously intractable problems," said Jay Bertelli, President and CEO of Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. "Early results from our collaboration show that, together, we can analyze streaming data in real time, which has been a critical challenge for data-intensive computing. Our goal is to open the door for new applications."
