      The Embedded High-Performance Computing (EHPC) project, which is funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, is a collaboration among six universities, two govermental institutions, and four coorporations. The primary goal of the project is to develop a platform architecture that can be customized easily to provide semi-special purpose computers for many scientific applications. High cost-performance will be achieved by using the system LSI technologies, FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array), and other embedded system technologies. The Booth will show the first prototype of the EHPC platform and some scientific applications, including molecular-orbital calculation, the density functional calculation, and drug design.
