Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor, abbreviated as CMOS, is a technology for constructing integrated circuits.
Cray Inc. is an American supercomputer manufacturer headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
The Cray C90 series (initially named the Y-MP C90) was a vector processor supercomputer launched by Cray Research in 1991.
The Cray EL90 series was an air-cooled vector processor supercomputer first sold by Cray Research in 1993.
The Cray X-MP is a supercomputer designed, built and sold by Cray Research.
The Cray-2 is a supercomputer with four vector processors made by Cray Research starting in 1985.
Cryptography or cryptology (from κρυπτός|translit.
Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) is a type of random access semiconductor memory that stores each bit of data in a separate tiny capacitor within an integrated circuit.
In electronics, emitter-coupled logic (ECL) is a high-speed integrated circuit bipolar transistor logic family.
In computing, floating point operations per second (FLOPS, flops or flop/s) is a measure of computer performance, useful in fields of scientific computations that require floating-point calculations.
The VP2000 was the second series of vector supercomputers from Fujitsu.
The Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is a major NASA space research laboratory located approximately northeast of Washington, D.C. in Greenbelt, Maryland, United States.
LINPACK is a software library for performing numerical linear algebra on digital computers.
Northern Exposure is an American comedy-drama Northern television series that ran on CBS from 1990 to 1995, with a total of 110 episodes.
An operating system (OS) is system software that manages computer hardware and software resources and provides common services for computer programs.
Sneakers is a 1992 American comedy caper film directed by Phil Alden Robinson, written by Robinson, Walter Parkes, and Lawrence Lasker, and starring Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, River Phoenix, Sidney Poitier and David Strathairn.
Static random-access memory (static RAM or SRAM) is a type of semiconductor memory that uses bistable latching circuitry (flip-flop) to store each bit.
A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of performance compared to a general-purpose computer.
Supertek Computers Inc. was a computer company founded in Santa Clara, California in 1985 by Mike Fung, an ex-Hewlett-Packard project manager, with the aim of designing and selling low-cost minisupercomputers compatible with those from Cray Research.
UNICOS is the name of a range of Unix-like operating system variants developed by Cray for its supercomputers.
In computing, a vector processor or array processor is a central processing unit (CPU) that implements an instruction set containing instructions that operate on one-dimensional arrays of data called vectors, compared to scalar processors, whose instructions operate on single data items.
VMEbus (Versa Module Europa bus) is a computer bus standard, originally developed for the Motorola 68000 line of CPUs, but later widely used for many applications and standardized by the IEC as ANSI/IEEE 1014-1987.
