An acronym for tera floating point operations per second. Tera refers to one trillion (1012), so one teraflop indicates a system can perform one trillion floating point operations per second.
 No-prototype initiative
A company-wide initiative promoted by Canon to only build necessary prototypes, eliminating useless product prototyping through the use of testing virtualization technology based on simulation technology.
In the field of analysis technology, in order to simulate phenomena using computers, items must be broken down into component elements composed of simple shapes. More precise simulations are possible by using larger numbers of small elements.
