Pamela Klabbers, an associate scientist in the department of physics, holds a large parallel processing computer card, one of 300 such cards to be mounted into 18 crates to collectively create a massive image processor capable of analyzing one trillion bits of data per second. The scientist is working with engineers at UW-Madison to develop and test the imaging processor for use as part of the image detector at CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland.

Close up view of integrated circuits on a summary card, one of 300 such parallel processing computer cards to be mounted into 18 crates to collectively create a massive image processor capable of analyzing one trillion bits of data per second. A summary card does the final processing of data and drives that information to the next processing level.
