The iWarp project was started in 1988 to investigate issues involved in building and using high performance computer systems with powerful communication support. It is an experimental parallel system based on the idea of integrating a VLIW processor and a sophisticated fine-grained communication system on a single chip. iWarp was designed and built jointly by Carnegie Mellon University and Intel Corporation. The high speed static memory and the high performance low latency communication system make iWarp a very well suited target for research efforts and many “proof of concept” applications.
Intel Corporation announced the iWarp systems as product in 1989 and built iWarp systems with over 1500 nodes since then. With the creation of the Intel Supercomputing Systems Division (iPSC) in 1992 the iWarp was merged with the iPSC product line. Intel kept iWarp as a product but stopped actively marketing it.
Today they are no longer made.
The name given to the Sony Corp. implementation of the IEEE 1394 standard. It’s the 4-pin or 6-pin bi-directional digital cable link between your Sony camcorder products and devices such as your PC or digital television, for example. i.LINK is also called FireWire or IEE 1394.
A small picture that represents an object or program. Icons are very useful in applications that use windows, because with the click of a mouse button you can shrink an entire window into a small icon. (This is sometimes called minimizing.) To redisplay the window, you merely move the pointer to the icon and click […]
- id10t error
(pronounced eye-dee-ten-tee) Technical support shorthand used to describe a common computer error caused by a user who has “no idea about what they are doing”. An id10t error is one that the user usually will not admit responsibility for. For example, if a user calls tech support claiming their password will not work, but they […]
(n.) In a biometric security system, the process of comparing a biometric data sample against all of the system��s databased reference templates in order to establish the identity of the person trying to gain access to the system. Contrast with verification.
Same as name. The term identifier is usually used for variable names.
