We report on the construction of a 1024 node switching network using IEEE 1355 DS link technology. The nodes are interconnected by a switching fabric based on the STC104 packet switch. The system has been designed and constructed in a modular way in order to allow a variety of different network topologies to be investigated. Network throughput and latency(More)
IEEE 1355 HS-Links and their support devices have been investigated as part of the ESPRIT projects Macramé and Arches. A description of the HS-Link technology and initial experience with the RCube 8-way packet router and the Bullit HS-Link interface device are presented. A 64 node HS-Link switching network based using these devices is being constructed at(More)
This paper is a slightly modified and reduced version of the proposal of the apeNEXT project, which was submitted to DESY and INFN in spring 2000. It presents the basic motivations and ideas of a next generation lattice QCD (LQCD) computing project, whose goal is the construction and operation of several large scale Multi-TFlops LQCD engines, providing an(More)
