IDT and CERN openlab Engineer Low-Latency RapidIO  Platform to Improve Analytics

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. ® announced that it has developed with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) a low-latency platform to speed and improve the management of analytics at the organization’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and data center. Developed at IDT’s Open HPAC Lab and built upon the company’s RapidIO® technology, the platform marks the first major milestone in the three-year collaboration IDT and CERN openlab announced in March.

CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership that accelerates the development of cutting-edge solutions for the worldwide LHC community and wider scientific research. Through CERN openlab, CERN collaborates with leading ICT companies and research institutes.

The collaboration was driven by the need to improve overall data acquisition and analysis for the massive volumes of data collected by the experiments on the LHC, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. The LHC produces millions of collisions every second in each detector, generating approximately one petabyte of data per second.  This data is vital to CERN’s quest to answer fundamental questions about the universe.
