According to Parallel's information, the Workstation 6 Extreme virtualization software runs with any Intel Xeon Processor 5500 or 5600 Series workstation with X58 or 5520 chipsets or better.
That said, the software has been tested running on a range of Dell Precision workstations, Fujitsu Celsius models, and HP's Z400/Z600/Z800 models, among other offerings. The virtualization software platform has also been tested to work with a range of ATI and NVIDA graphics processors supporting the Intel direct assignment technology.
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
