    The diversity of languages is one of the main barriers to international trade and a cause of relative isolation for parts of the population. Retaining and supporting this diversity is a determining factor for social and political cohesion within the European Union. European support in the field of language engineering will help to realise and exploit fully the potential of language technologies (L... View full abstract»

    The electronic design, test and application of a PCI-SCI bridge supporting shared memory, message passing and DMA is described. The objectives for designing a bridge between the IEEE 1596 SCI standard and the popular PCI bus were applications in high energy physics where large scale processor farms are needed to process large amounts of data in real time. The SCI's shared memory paradigm is partic... View full abstract»
