What is Athlon 64?
First of all, it must be emphasized that in the AMD64 architecture, the main attention was paid to the issue of compatibility with 32-bit applications that are widespread now. The…

MAX + plus II: FPGA Integrated Digital Device Development Environment

The general tendency for the development of the element base of digital circuitry, starting with the appearance of the first integrated circuits in the early 60s to the present, is a continuous increase in the number of logic elements (LEs) placed on the chip, while reducing the unit cost of one element. An increase in the number of LEs continuously opens up the possibility of creating increasingly complex digital devices placed on a single chip. The main (far from complete) positive results of this trend include: Continue reading

How to avoid network downtime?

Since then, no surprises have occurred with Novell products to solve the high availability of network resources. Naturally, Novell ceased to support its once-very popular NetWare 3.x product, since over the nearly ten-year history of its existence in the world of information technology, much has flowed. The high availability solutions we reviewed, such as SFT III and NHAS, were not developed in future versions of the operating system. Continue reading
