This project won the Seymour Cray prize in 1994. Alain Greiner directed the MPC project,
a parallel computer architecture based on the 1Gbit/s HSL serial link technology developped at UPMC.
Alain Greiner is a co-founder of two start-up companies : Thachys Technologies was created
in 1996 in order to make commercial exploitation of the HSL interconnexion technology
(chips and macrocells). Avertec was created in 1998 in order to make commercial exploitation
of several VLSI/CAD tools for verification of deep-submicronic design. He is presently head of the
SOC department of the LIP6 Laboratory, and assistant director of the LIP6.
