Based on AdvancedTCA, Mercury's Momentum Series TSA-200 blade server incorporates the IBM 970FX processor, a 64-bit implementation of the PowerPC family that supports high-bandwidth data processing. The dual PowerPC architecture is connected to the system via IBM's CPC295 northbridge, which accommodates CPU bus interface and management, DDR1 memory bus control, and HyperTransport technology.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
