UltraSPARC CMT for multicore in Europe

Filed under: Multicore — multicoreblog @ 4:44 am


“More Than 650 European Universities and Research Institutions Invited to Develop Innovative Processor Designs Based on Sun Microsystems’s OpenSPARC Technology”.

A nice title for the article that presents the agreement between Sun and Europractice to foster best practices throughout European education institutions and promote curriculum adoption.

“Sun and Europractice will hold the first in a series of OpenSPARC technology workshops this autumn. Professors from participating universities will join Sun experts to learn first-hand about the latest processor innovations, including chip multithreading (CMT) and software programming that maximizes the advantages of multithreading. These professors will then incorporate OpenSPARC in their curriculum, research and lab work”.

“Students with access to the OpenSPARC technology will be empowered to create innovative and advanced solutions more quickly and easily due to Sun’s open processor architecture”.


“As a global initiative, today’s announcement builds on similar efforts by Sun and universities in China, Taiwan, New Zealand and the United States”.


In New Zealand, Otago University is a Sun OpenSPARC Centre of Excellence since June 2008.
