Advertising division: JSC - Jülich Supercomputing Centre
Reference number: 2018-249


The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), embedded in the lively research environment of the Forschungszentrum Jülich, is one of the three national supercomputing centres in Germany. It is partnering with leading technology providers to co-design hardware architectures for future supercomputers.
In the context of the European Processor Initiate (EPI) we perform research on co-design of a future server processor. For this processor a system-on-a-chip (SoC) design is pursued to facilitate, in particular, its integration in a scalable, dense supercomputer architecture.
