Trans-Continental InfiniBand Charts Exascale Course

Feb 3, 2015 |

Many nations are racing to cross the exascale computing finish line by roughly 2020. Yet the challenges are such that establishing useful exascale computers some 50-100 times faster than today’s leadership machines requires the coordinated efforts of a vast array of stakeholders. At Supercomputing 2014 (SC14), an industry collaboration called InfiniCortex launched with the goal Read more…

Tackling Electromagnetic Interference

May 6, 2014 |

A team of researchers from the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) is working to ameliorate electromagnetic incompatibility. The issue of unwanted interference is only set to worsen in step with the continued shrinking of electronic components. As componentry heads toward the nanoscale, problematic ‘noise’ arises from electromagnetic interference and susceptibility. As Xian-Ke Gao Read more…

Singapore Researchers Build a Better Shockwave Model

Aug 8, 2013 |

Accurately modeling the flow of shockwaves across a fluid body can be a difficult thing to do. Attempts to address the problem by dialing up the computational accuracy of the models can actually make it worse. Now, researchers at the IHPC have come up with an innovative way that models shockwaves with a higher level of overall accuracy.
