Fujitsu will supply Canon ARM-PRIMEHPC FX1000 supercomputer with a capacity of 649 TFlops
Fujitsu Limited announced this week that it has received an order from Canon for the new Fujitsu PRIMEHPC FX1000 supercomputer, which is the closest relative of the world's fastest Fugaku supercomputer. The expected theoretical peak performance of the new supercomputer is 648.8 teraflops. This supercomputer has a key role to play in Canon's initiative to develop a variety of devices without prototyping, including MFPs and printers, as well as cameras and equipment for semiconductor lithography. Instead of prototyping, Canon uses 3D CAD in analytical modeling to evaluate various aspects of the devices being developed, including functionality and ease of production.
Canon previously relied on the Fujitsu PRIMEHPC FX10 and Fujitsu PRIMEHPC FX100 supercomputers. Now, to reach a new level, Canon is introducing the Fujitsu PRIMEHPC FX1000 system, which combines reliability, high performance and the world's highest energy efficiency. In addition to the PRIMEHPC FX1000 with 192 nodes, the company will also SUPPLY additional Fujitsu Server Primergy and Fujitsu Storage Eternus servers.
It is reported that the supercomputer system will allow, for example, to conduct a larger-scale analysis of the consequences of a device fall with an assessment of damage or deformation on models with more than 100 million elements that previous systems could not cope with. The new system will also allow analysis of air flow and electromagnetic waves. These benefits will ultimately help improve the product development process as part of Canon's no-prototype initiative.
