What is the HyperTransport Center of Excellence?
Our mission is to promote, support and initialize the use and
application of the HyperTransport interface to research and industry.
The HyperTransport Center of Excellence (HTCE) will help the community with profound know-how in the area of
interfaces, drivers, IP-Cores and the development of innovative
products based on the HT interface. The HTCE is funded by and works in
close cooperation with AMD research facilities in order to improve the
HT interface and the IP cores in the scope of the Torrenza initiative.
As a leading global provider of innovative microprocessor solutions AMD
is a world-class company with the innovation, execution, and vision to
grow our leadership position in the industry. Today's world-class
companies share three essential characteristics. Firstly, they deliver
innovative products and technologies that customers want. Secondly,
they have established a proven track record of fast, efficient
manufacturing execution. And finally, they have a bold vision of where
to take their business, and often their industry, in the future.
About the Computer Architecture Group
The Computer Architecture Group (CAG) is a research group with a well known
background in computer architecture and networking. The group's
practical expertise covers the complete process required for system
architecture design and therefore provides architecture innovations and
development platforms related to high performance computing and
Their research projects usually result in real-world silicon devices in
modern process technologies as the latest UMC and IBM processes. Their
expertise allows them to bring up complex systems based on these
Ongoing research generally results in novel, innovative and
sophisticated mechanisms for communication. The HyperTransport
interface will be supported for a wide variety of applications with an
open source HT core and a FPGA based prototyping platform. The Center
of Excellence is supported by AMD and the University of Heidelberg. The
CAG is a contributing member of the HyperTransport Consortium.
