Sun Microsystems Receives Multi-Million Defense Contract to Develop Advanced Microchip Interconnect System

Sun Microsystems, Inc. was awarded $44.29 Million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for a research project that will advance the development of lower cost, high performance, high productivity systems. The development of these advanced systems can be utlilized by various industries that need supercomputing systems, including biotechnology and energy exploration. The DARPA funding comes from the agency’s Ultraperformance Nanophotonic Intrachip Communication program, and the project will annually bring just over $8 million to Sun Microsystems' Microelectronics and Laboratories divisions.
