Napatech's NT20E2 Network Adapters

With the introduction of the NT20E2 Capture adapter and NT20E2 In-line adapter products, Napatech recently unveiled what it calls “the world's first 2x10 Gbps Intelligent Real-time Network Analysis adapters”. Napatech has positioned the NT20E2 In-line for applications that require both capture and transmit in real time, such as intrusion prevention systems and policy enforcement applications operating at 10Gbps line-speed. The former is complemented by the NT20E2 Capture adapter, which provides full 20Gbps packet capture throughput over the PCI-Express Gen 2 bus. The NT20E2 is drop-in-compatible with existing NT20E cards and is supported by the same driver software as other Napatech network adapters on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows.

A big welcome to the Linux family is in order for Synaptics, whose Gesture Suite Linux (SGS-L) for its TouchPads is now available on a number of Linux variants. The solution allows OEMs that offer Linux-based solutions to provide their users “a powerful and intuitive way to be more productive and interactive with their Linux-based notebook systems”. SGS-L supports a wide range of pointing enhancements and gestures, including two-finger scrolling, PinchZoom, TwistRotate, PivotRotate, three-finger flick, three-finger press, Momentum and ChiralScrolling. It is provided free of charge to Synaptics OEM/ODM partners when ordered with Synaptics TouchPad and ClickPad products.

Numerical Algorithms Group's NAG Library for SMP and Multicore

Application developers seeking two essential things—better use of the processing power of multicore computer systems and an easy way to migrate existing applications to multiprocessor architectures—can go and get the Numerical Algorithms Group's NAG Library for SMP and Multicore. The company points out how mathematical and statistical algorithms optimized for performance on multicore architectures have become key to progress in various aspects of technical application development and computationally intensive problem solving. The library contains more than 1,600 routines, including more than 100 new ones for this release.
