Gateway Signs Another Grid Customer: March 2004: "Gateway has signed on another customer for its Grid computing serviceRapid Prototypes says it is analyzing the design of backplanes for next-generation optical switching equipment - and saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process - thanks to its use of the Grid computing service from Gateway and United Devices.   ..

Field programmable gateway arrays (FPGAs) are integrated circuits (ICs) that can be programmed in the field after they've been manufactured. They let engineers design specialized ICs that can later be produced hard-wired in large quantities for distribution to computer manufacturers and end users. In this case, Rapid Prototypes is analyzing backplane systems for next generation Internet switching equipment.  Rapid Prototypes president Brian Von Herzen said the Gateway service "allows us to simulate very high-speed electronics without investing in expensive new hardware.."

Gateway's Grid service launched December 2002, joining about 7,000 computers in Gateway retail stores across the U.S. The system ranks among the 10 largest supercomputers in the world by processing power, producing more than 11 TFLOPS (trillion floating point operations per second) at peak capacity, with most nodes averaging 2 GHz or better."
