High Performance Computing

Welcome to the home page of the High Performance Computing Group of the Electronics Laboratory, ETH Zurich.

The group is headed by Prof. Dr. A. Gunzinger.

Current Project: Swiss-Tx

We are currently developing a communication card based on the Remote Store Architecture. This work is part of the Swiss-Tx project.

Together with our partners Supercomputing Systems AG, CAPA EPFL, DIGITAL, CSCS and Oracle a commodity parts based series of supercomputers is developed. The project benefits from a strong collaboration with Sandia National Labs and Oak Ridge National Labs.
The project is funded by CTI (Commission for Technology and Innovation).
