UTCS is pleased to note a number of recent, significant awards and honors. The department is deeply honored by the peer and public recognition of our work.
TRIPS (The Tera-op, Reliable, Intelligently adaptive Processing System) is a revolutionary new polymorphous microprocessor architecture designed and built by the Department of Computer Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin. For the past seven years the research team, led by Professors Doug Burger, Stephen Keckler and Kathryn McKinley, has been working on the design of the processor, an updated cross-platform compiler and the instruction set architecture needed to run it.
Professor Kathryn McKinley has been named a 2006 ACM Distinguished Scientist.
In a recent article entitled "Fired Up for the Supercomputer Derby", Business Week highlighted the TRIPS technology along with the other competitors in the contest.
