SGI, Nallatech to Develop FPGA-based Computing Apps; SGI Sells Systems to Canadian Med School

NEW YORK, July 19 (GenomeWeb News) - Silicon Graphics will collaborate with UK-based Nallatech to develop products and services based on SGI's reconfigurable system technology and Nallatech's Field Programmable Gate Array computing technology, Nallatech said yesterday.


The companies plan to apply FPGA-based computing solutions to growth markets, which could include bioinformatics.


Separately, SGI said yesterday that it has sold an array of Silicon Graphics visualization systems, storage solutions, and visual area networking software to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, a new medical school that will be distributed between the campuses of Laurentian University and Lakehead University. Students will use the systems for molecular modeling and medical visualization.
