FR-V processor cores (FR550)
The FR-V processor is Fujitsu's 32-bit RISC microprocessor for embedded applications, and is suited for Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) architecture. Within its FR-V family of processors, Fujitsu offers the high-performance FR550 series which can execute eight instructions simultaneously, and the FR400/450 series which can simultaneously execute two instructions. A processor core is a heart of the processor and includes the instruction control units, operation units, and cache memory units.
 DMA controller
Direct memory access controller. This is a type of controller that can transfer data between memories or between a memory and an IO device independently of a processor core.
 MPEG2 MP@HL
An MPEG2 specification, short for "MPEG main profile at high level", a codec for high-definition digital television broadcasts at 1920 x 1080 dot resolution. This specification defines compression and decompression method for color video images.
A massively parallel simulation server for genomic-based drug discovery research. Jointly developed by Fujitsu and Fujitsu Laboratories, this server is built on Fujitsu's FR-V family of processors and currently houses 1920 CPUs in a single chassis. The server's standout feature is its extremely dense processor mounting, achieving low power consumptions and meeting limited space requirements. Using BioServer, Fujitsu and Fujitsu Laboratories have succeeded in conducting high-speed, high-accuracy simulations of the binding energy of proteins and drug candidates.
