Supercomputing Gets Even Cooler

In this week’s Fish Fry, I have a couple of super-cool supercomputing super-stories for you. I look into the Blue Waters Project that aims to solve the world’s most complex problems through petascale computing. I also interview Stefan Mohl (Mitrionics – CTO) about how Mitrionics has reorganized this year, how they are shifting the focus of their supercomputing FPGAs to the HPC market, and how Mitrion-C is facilitating that new focus.

I have a super awesome new nerdy giveaway to throw your way this week, but you’ll have to tune in to find out what it is and how you can win.

When faced with the need for more of something, one possible solution is expansion. This could take many forms but one simple way is extending it to be greater in size, such as adding the dining room table leaves to fit more people around the Thanksgiving table. Samtec’s...
