Eurotech: Parvus Announces Rugged Tactical Fiber Optic Gigabit Ethernet Switch Subsystem

Parvus DuraNET 1268 Switch Now Available with TFOCA II Fiber Optic Connectors for Military Tactical Deployable Networks

Amaro (Italy) – May 23rd, 2012 – Eurotech subsidiary Parvus announces tactical fiber optic media support for the DuraNET® 1268, a rugged Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch subsystem equipped with ten (10) triple-speed 10/100/1000Mbps ports for connecting IPv4 and IPv6 compatible sensors and computing devices onboard demanding tactical network-centric (un)manned vehicle and aircraft platforms. Designed for rugged extremes, this Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-optimized Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) solution is well suited for C4ISR technology refresh and situational awareness upgrade programs. To enhance reliability, the unit features no moving parts, a near cable-less internal design, all industrial temperature grade components, EMI filtering, and a sealed dust/ waterproof aluminum chassis with isolated MIL-STD-1275/704 power supply that protects against vehicle/aircraft voltage surges, spikes and transients.

Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are brought out over rugged MIL-DTL-38999 connectors on the front panel and now optionally Tactical Fiber Optic Cable Assembly (TFOCA® II) connectors on the rear. These optical interfaces are designed to survive the harshest battlefield conditions and were selected by the U.S. ARMY WIN-T program as the standard next generation fiber optic connector for military tactical deployable networks.

Managed and unmanaged switch configurations are available for configurable or “plug and play” Gigabit Ethernet LAN applications. The base DuraNET® 1268 was previously qualification tested for extreme MIL-STD-461F EMI/EMC and MIL-STD-810G thermal, shock, vibe, humidity, altitude, and ingress conditions, as well as RTCA/DO-160G airworthiness tests for low temperature and high altitude operation.

The DuraNET® 1268 features an onboard microprocessor for local/remote control and port monitoring, as well as support for Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization, Virtual Local-Area Network (VLAN) trunking, Telnet remote CLI management, and Rapid Spanning Tree (RSP) redundancy. To enhance security and system management, the unit integrates recoverable data zeroization capabilities for declassifying switch data, along with RS-232 Command Line Interface (CLI) and Ethernet management ports. Status LEDs indicate zeroization signal, power, and port link/speed/activity.

DuraNET 1268 subsystems with fiber optic support will begin in Q3 2012. Contact for pricing and updated production availability information. For additional specifications or to download a product datasheet, visit 1268.

Eurotech: €1.2M order for Aurora HPC from German Research Centre Jülich


Amaro (Italy) – April 5th, 2012 – Eurotech, a leading company in embedded and supercomputing technologies, announces that it has received a 1.2 million euro order from Forschungszentrum Jülich, one of the largest research centres in Europe, for supply of a HPC (High Performance Computing) system of the Aurora family. Delivery is scheduled to take place within this year.
The Aurora HPC will be used within the scope of the EU-funded project DEEP (Dynamical Exascale Entry Platform), an innovative European response to the challenge of creating supercomputers capable of performing ExaFlops, i.e. a billion billion calculations per second, that is a thousand times faster than today’s fastest supercomputers.
The DEEP consortium, led by Forschungszentrum Jülich, proposes to develop a novel, Exascale-enabling supercomputing architecture that takes the concept of compute acceleration to a new level: instead of adding accelerator cards to Cluster nodes, an accelerator Cluster, called Booster, will complement a conventional HPC system and increase its compute performance. While the Cluster is an off-the-shelf component, the Booster will be designed and built by the DEEP project partners using cutting edge technology. Together with a software stack focused on meeting Exascale requirements, comprising adapted programming models, libraries and performance tools, the DEEP architecture will enable unprecedented scalability. In the DEEP consortium Eurotech will be the responsible to assemble and design the cabinets, racks and blades of the system.

Note: the DEEP project will be funded by the European Commission, under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-ICT-2011-7, Integrated Project No. 287530).

Eurotech: ordine di €1,2M per HPC Aurora dal Centro di Ricerca tedesco Jülich


Amaro (UD) – 5 aprile 2012 – Eurotech, azienda leader nelle tecnologie embedded e di supercalcolo, annuncia di aver ricevuto un ordine di 1,2 milioni di Euro da Forschungszentrum Jülich, uno dei più grandi centri di ricerca in Europa, per la fornitura di un sistema HPC (High Performance Computing) della famiglia Aurora. La consegna è prevista quest’anno. 
L’HPC Aurora sarà utilizzato nell’ambito del progetto finanziato dall’UE denominato DEEP (Dinamico Entry Exascale Platform), una innovativa risposta europea alla sfida di creare supercomputer in grado di raggiungere gli ExaFlops, vale a dire un miliardo di miliardi di calcoli al secondo, ovvero un migliaio di volte più veloci rispetto ai più veloci supercomputer di oggi. 
Il consorzio DEEP, guidato da Forschungszentrum Jülich, si propone di sviluppare un’innovativa architettura di supercalcolo di classe Exascale, che porti il concetto di accelerazione dell’elaborazione ad un nuovo livello: invece di aggiungere schede di accelerazione ai nodi di un Cluster, un Cluster acceleratore, chiamato Booster, integrerà un sistema HPC convenzionale e ne aumenterà la potenza di calcolo. Mentre il Cluster sarà un componente off-the-shelf, cioè disponibile sul mercato, il Booster sarà progettato e costruito dai partner del progetto DEEP con tecnologia all’avanguardia. Grazie anche ad un pacchetto software focalizzato sulla soddisfazione delle esigenze specifiche di una piattaforma Exascale, che comprende modelli di programmazione adeguati, librerie e strumenti di ottimizzazione delle performance, l’architettura DEEP consentirà una scalabilità senza precedenti. All’interno del consorzio DEEP, Eurotech sarà responsabile della progettazione e assemblaggio degli armadi, dei cestelli e delle schede del sistema.
